Dear Manjunath
The motion of the particles of the medium are back and forth along along the same direction that the wave travels this wave is called longitudinal wave
All the best for your bright future

Hello Manjunadh: A wave that oscillates back and forth on an axis that is the same as the axis along which the wave propagates. Sound waves are longitudinal waves, since the air molecules are displaced forward and backward on the same axis along which the sound travels. Compare transverse wave.

a wave that propagate in a medium from one point another point is called longitudinal wave.and the particles vibrate in the direction of the propagation of the wave.

langitudinal waves also known as i waves in which the diplacement of the medium same direction  or oppisite direction is called langitudinal wave..

dear manju,the wave in which the particles vibrate is parallel to the direction of the propagation of the wave is called as langitudinal wave.
