Top best answers to the question «Is visible light a transverse or longitudinal wave»

Sound is a longitudinal wave, while light is a transverse wave. Polarization requires the direction of the wave to be perpendicular to the direction of propogation; only light can do this. Doppler effect, refraction, and interference occur in both wave types.
