P a Vertical Rod is Hit at One End. What Kind of Wave Propagates in the Rod If (A) the Hit is Made Vertically (B) the Hit is Made Horizontally? - Physics
A vertical rod is hit at one end. What kind of wave propagates in the rod if (a) the hit is made vertically (b) the hit is made horizontally?
A longitudinal wave propagates when the rod is hit vertically.
When hit horizontally too, a longitudinal wave is produced (sound wave). However, if the rod vibrates, the wave so developed is transverse in nature.
