Figure 1-1.Formation of waves in water.
Figure 1-2.How a falling stone creates wave motion to the surface of water.
In this example, the water is not actually being moved outward by the motion of the waves, but up
and down as the waves move outward. The up and down motion is transverse, or at right angles, to the
outward motion of the waves. This type of wave motion is called TRANSVERSE WAVE MOTION.
Q5. What type of wave motion is represented by the motion of water?
