2 In this course, a sound wave is roughly defined as any longitudinal wave (particles moving along the direction of wave propagation). Sound Waves 17- Fig. 17-2 Wavefronts : surfaces over which the the oscillations due to the sound wave have the same value, e.g, at maximum crest. Rays : directed lines perpendicular to the wavefronts, indicate direction the direction of travel of the wavefronts Spherical waves Plane waves Particle motion
