    • Mechanical Waves.
      • Propagate through a material medium (solid, liquid, or gas) at a wave speed which depends on the elastic and inertial properties of that medium.
    • Progressive Waves.
      • The wave front moves through the medium.
    • Transverse Waves.
      • A moving wave that consists of oscillations occurring perpendicular (or right angled) to the direction of energy transfer.
    • Longitudinal Waves.
      • The displacement of the medium is in the same direction as, or the opposite direction to, the direction of travel of the wave.
