what are transverse waves?

Asked by gujralhsk 28th September 2009, 6:11 PM
Answered by Expert


A transverse wave is a moving wave that consists of oscillations occurring perpendicular to the direction of energy transfer. If a transverse wave is moving in the positive x-direction, its oscillations are in up and down directions that lie in the y-z plane.
