a transverse is a wave in which the motion of the medium is a right angle to the direction of the wave.
in a longitudinal wave the motion of the medium is parallel to the direction of the wave..
thank you

transverse wave
the particles of the medium vibrate about perpendicular to the direction of wave motion
propagates in the form of crests and troughs
at the crest displacement of the particle is positive and maximum while at the trough its is negative and minimum
these waves can only be produced in solids and liquid surfaces
while propagating it causes no variation in density and pressure of the medium
longitudinal wave
the particles of the medium vibrate in the direction of the motion of the wave
it propagates in the form of compressions and rarefactions
at the position of compression the velocity of particle of medium is positive and maximum while at the position of rarefaction the velocity is negative and minimum
these waves can be produced in solids, liquids and gases
at the position of compression the density and pressure of the medium becomes maximum while at the position of rarefaction the density and pressure becomes minimum
