  • The difference between transverse and longitudinal waves is the direction the medium of the wave moves in relation to the direction of wave propagation. In transverse waves, the medium is displaced perpendicular to the direction of the wave.
  • a. Transverse wave : A wave in which particles of the medium vibrate in a direction perpendicular to the direction of propagation of wave is called transverse wave. b. Longitudinal wave : A wave in which particles of the medium vibrate in a direction parallel to the direction of propagation of wave is called longitudinal wave.

Longitudinal waves vibration is parallel to the direction of propagation and transverse waves vibrations are perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation. In general waves are quaternion and contain a real /longitudinal wave and a vector/transverse wave.
