Mechanical Waves are waves which propagate through a material medium (solid, liquid, or gas) at a wave speed which depends on the elastic and inertial properties of that medium.

There are two basic types of wave motion for mechanical waves: longitudinal waves and transverse waves.

So your should be difference between transverse and longitudinal waves.
