Question

A wave moving in a gas


  1. must be longitudinal

  2. may be longitudinal

  3. must be transverse

  4. may be transverse


Solution

The correct option is A

must be longitudinal


Gases cannot provide restoring force in the transverse direction but due to fact that they can compress, a longitudinal wave becomes possible. It travels as pressure fluctuations.
