Mechanical waves Main article: Mechanical wave [edit] Waves on strings Main article: Vibrating string The speed of a wave traveling along a vibrating string ( v ) is directly proportional to the square root of the tension of the string ( T ) over the linear mass density ( µ ): where the linear density µ is the mass per unit length of the string. [edit] Acoustic waves Acoustic or sound waves travel at speed given by or the square root of the adiabatic bulk modulus divided by the ambient fluid density (see speed of sound). [edit] Water waves Main article: Water waves Ripples on the surface of a pond are actually a combination of transverse and longitudinal waves; therefore, the points on the surface follow orbital paths. Sound—a mechanical wave that propagates through gases, liquids, solids and plasmas; Inertial waves, which occur in rotating fluids and are restored by the Coriolis effect; Ocean surface waves, which are perturbations that propagate through water. [edit] Seismic waves Main article: Seismic waves [edit] Shock waves Main article: Shock wave See also: Sonic boom and Cherenkov radiation [edit] Other Waves of traffic, that is, propagation of different densities of motor vehicles, and so forth, which can be modeled as kinematic waves[26] Metachronal wave refers to the appearance of a traveling wave produced by coordinated sequential actions
