When the piston moves out again before the molecules have time to bang around then the increase in pressure moves down the tube like a pulse (single peak and trough, a single wave cycle).

As this repeats we get waves of increased and decreased pressure moving down the tubes. We cone  describe these pulses of increased pressure (peaks in the pressure) and decreased pressure (troughs of pressure) by a sine or cosine graph.

The second additional type of wave is the torsional wave. The peaks and troughs rotate around the direction of motion. In simpler terms, a “twisting motion” is transmitted through the medium. Of the two wave types, this is the hardest one to describe and visualize.

There are a number of examples of each type of wave. Not all cone  be seen without the naked eye but all cone be detected.

Properties of Waves

We have discussed some of the simple properties of waves which we need to know. These have just been describing the characteristics which waves have. Now we cone  progress onto some more interesting and, perhaps, less intuitive properties of waves.
