Define transverse wave motion.  What are the essential conditions required for the formation of transverse wave motion?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 04 Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
Expert Answer

In a transverse wave motion, the particles of the medium through which the wave is travelling, vibrate in a direction perpendicular to the direction of propagation of the wave.

In the figure, the wave is travelling from left to right.  (i.e., horizontally), whereas the particle vibrates simple harmonically in a vertical direction.

The essential conditions required in the medium for their propagation are :

(i) elasticity

(ii) inertia

(iii) absence of frictional resistance.
