Waves -- Two Types Transverse wave Examples: waves on string E & M radiation Longitudinal (compression) wave e.g. sound d = v t Coils separating Coils compressed Coils not yet compressed Coils move up and then back d = v t 12-1 v= speed of wave- (disturbance from equilibrium)

12-3 Rarefactions Compressions V P v = where = mass/volume T v = waves on string : T= tension; m=string mass; L=string length sound waves : P= gas pressure; m= mass; V=volume =gas density =m/V =m/L
