What are compression waves?
The amount of compression of a compression wave is like the amplitude of a transverse wave.
group of molecules that is squeezed together. or A wave propagated by means of the compression of a fluid, as a sound wave in air is. or a mechanical wave in which matter in …the medium moves forward and backward along the direction the wave travels
its were the most energy in the wave is
my answer is no
No. surface waves on the surface of water is transverse in nature. It has crests and troughs. Compression and rarefaction will be in longitudinal wave. example sound waves.
As a sound wave travels it compresses the air particles around it together in order for it to travel because a wave cannot travel if the matter it uses isn't connected.
yes a sound wave is a Compressional wave
If they were they would not travel through a vacuum because there would be nothing to compress. But they do travel through vacuums, so they can't be compression waves. More… detail... The above does not exclude a medium that can exist in a vacuum For EM waves to be a compression wave, it must have some medium. For many years, the ether/aether was considered to be the medium, but the Michelson-Morley experiment failed to show any effect consistent with ether/aether, and the concept is now considered invalied. So, since the ether/aether cannot be detected, EM waves have no medium, so EM waves are not compression waves.
it is unclear what you mean. One form of 'compression' would be the dopplar effect whereby a object producing sound is moving towards the listener. The sound heard by the list…ener is of a higher frequency than the sound that is produced.
Transverse waves have crests and troughs. Longitudinal waves have compressions and rarefactions.
Yes, it does.
There are four types of seismic waves, the P-wave, S-wave and the Love and Rayleigh waves. Of these four types, the P-wave is a longitudinal / compression wave.
they both make motion wave
A rainbow is made of different wavelengths (different colors) of light waves, and light waves are usually considered transverse waves.
