Question

The phenomenon of beats can take place
(a) for longitudinal waves only
(b) transverse waves only
(c) for both longitudinal and transverse waves
(d) for sound waves only.


Solution

(c) for both longitudinal and transverse waves

When two or more waves of slightly different frequencies (v1v2 ≯ 10) travel with the same speed in the same direction, they superimpose to give beats. Thus, the waves may be longitudinal or transverse.
