Hey, Jody I heard you were wondering about a transverse wave. We're currently learning about them in school.
A transverse wave moves the medium, which could be a solid, liquid or gas perpendicular to the direction in which the wave moves.
Do you hear that ? That's the sound of the wave moving through the water. Transverse wave impact humans on a daily basis because we are able to generate renewable electricity from wave motion
Chole: Sure chase, Well an example of a Transverse wave would consider the waves of a string such as a guitar or a human wave
Chase: Hey Chloe can you give me some examples of a transverse wave
An example of Transverse wave is the waves on vibrating strings. Pianos and guitars both use vibrating strings to produce music. A guitar string’s motion can be described as a transverse wave because it oscillates up and down perpendicular to its axis of motion
Guitar strings in transverse waves impacts us because we can hear how the sound vibrates while playing the instrument.
