Is a wave that contains a Crest, Through, and an Aplatude.Particles move up or down while the wave moves left to right thouse forming a 90 degree angle.
Is a wave that contains a Comphression and rarefraction. The particle move parellel to the wave. The wave and the particles will never intersect.Think of them as one set of rail-road tracks.
