Problem 6RQ

Cite evidence to support the fact that compressions and rarefactions travel in the same direction in a wave.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 6RQ Compression is molecules pushing up against each other until they push out,like a pressure of a opening door in room each eventually that pushes air out of opposing window. Refraction occurs when closing a door,as it has removed pressure in the room and a zone of low pressure is called rarified making other molecules of air move into vacuum instead of being pushed. Otherwise Simply the region of increased pressure in a longitudinal pressure is compression and the region of reduced pressure in a longitudinal wave is refraction.both are travel at same speed and in same direction from the tuning fork through the air in tube.compression travel along a spring and refraction is a stretched rejection between successive compression.
