What is a transverse wave? In which medium: solid, liquid or gas, can it be produced?



The wave in which the particles of medium vibrate about their mean positions, in a direction perpendicular to the direction of propagation of the wave is called a Transverse wave.

Transverse waves can only be produced in solids and on the surface of liquids. They cannot be produced inside liquids and in gases.
