Oceanography week 4 Longitudinal wave particles move back and forth in direction of energy transmission. These waves transmit energy through all states of matter. Transverse wave particles move back and forth at right angles to direction of energy transmission these waves transmit energy only through solids. Orbital wave particles move in an orbital path. These waves transmit energy along interface between the fluids of different density (fluids and gases) Storm center- area of origin for surface waves generated by the wind: an intense atmospheric low pressure system The Velocity of a body- a specification of both its speed and direction in which it’s moving. The Speed of a moving body- the rate at which the distance covered by the body changes with time. The terms speed and velocity are often used interchangeably, since direction in which something is moving may be understood by implication. However, it is good practice to reserve speed for the rate at which something covers distance and velocity for the complete picture of motion in space (the direction factor).
