Waves are a form of disturbance which travels through a medium due to repeated periodic motion of the particles of the medium about their mean position.

Waves are of two types:

Transverse waves and longitudinal waves

Transverse:

It is a wave motion in which the particles of the medium execute simple harmonic motion about its mean position perpendicular to the direction of propagation of wave.

They are accompanied by crests and trough.

It cannot be produced in gases and liquids.

Longitudinal:

It is a wave motion in which the particles of the medium execute simple harmonic motion about its mean position along the direction of propagation of wave.

They are accompanied by compression and rarefraction.

It can be produced in all mediums
