Longitudinal and Transverse Wave Motion
Mechanical Waves are waves which propagate through a material medium (solid, liquid, or gas) at a wave speed which depends on the elastic and inertial properties of that medium. There are two basic types of wave motion for mechanical waves: longitudinal waves and transverse waves. The animations below demonstrate both types of wave and illustrate the difference between the motion of the wave and the motion of the particles in the medium through which the wave is travelling. [The following animations were created using a modifed version of the Mathematica Notebook " Sound Waves " by Mats Bengtsson.]
Longitudinal Waves
In a longitudinal wave the particle displacement is parallel to the direction of wave propagation. The animation below shows a one-dimensional longitudinal plane wave propagating down a tube. The particles do not move down the tube with the wave; they simply oscillate back and forth about their individual equilibrium positions. Pick a single particle and watch its motion. The wave is seen as the motion of the compressed region (ie, it is a pressure wave), which moves from left to right. To see a animations of spherical longitudinal waves check out:
Transverse Waves
In a transverse wave the particle displacement is perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation. The animation below shows a one-dimensional transverse plane wave propagating from left to right. The particles do not move along with the wave; they simply oscillate up and down about their individual equilibrium positions as the wave passes by. Pick a single particle and watch its motion.

New Wiki Page!
A new, secure Wiki has been created for physics learning resource specialists. Everyone is welcome and invited to create pages for lecture demonstrations, student labs, outreach, etc. This is experimental and freeform at this stage, so feel free test ideas. As pages develop, the content might be divided into, for example, separate Wikis for lecture demonstration and student labs.
File Sharing !!
New feature! Upload/download images, videos and other multimedia files. Share and browse. The 5-MB size limit for file uploads in the beta version has been eliminated. Files up to 200 MB are accepted now. ... Free Physics drawings for your tests and lectures

Outstanding Students attend ICPS in Austria

The 2010 SPS Outstanding Students Award recipients, Anya Burkart (Creighton University), and Daniel Glass (Elon University), represented the United States and SPS and presented their research at the 2010 International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS), August 17-23, 2010, in Graz, Austria. Expenses for transportation, room, board, and meeting registration were paid by SPS and it's parent organization, the American Institute of Physics.
