Sound waves in air (and any fluid medium) are longitudinal waveslongitudinal wavesIn this case, the particles of the medium move parallel to the direction that the pulse moves. This type of wave is a longitudinal wave. Longitudinal waves are always characterized by particle motion being parallel to wave motion. A sound wave traveling through air is a classic example of a longitudinal wave. › Categories-of-WavesCategories of Waves – The Physics Classroom because particles of the medium through which the sound is transported vibrate parallel to the direction that the sound wave moves. … These back and forth vibrations are imparted to adjacent neighbors by particle-to-particle interaction
