Hii anoop


 


Waves are basically transformation of enregy through  a medium....now given below is the classification waves according to different criteria...have a look  !


 


Regarding their ability to transmit energy through vacuum


1.Mechanical waves (which needs medium to pass and cannot
transmit energy through vacuum)

Examples are sound waves
2.Electromagnetic waves (no need of medium to pass and can
transmit energy through vacuum)

Examples are light waves

Regarding the motion of particles of medium during the disturbance


1. Transverse waves
(motion of particles perpendicular to
propagation of waves)

Examples are waves introduced in a string piece
2. Longitudinal waves (motion of particles parallel to propagation of
waves)

Examples are sound waves
3.Surface waves (motion of particles is circular as the waves passes
through


 


 


I hope it is clear now


 


With regards
