Problem 7DQ

Is it possible to have a longitudinal wave on a stretched string? Why or why not? Is it possible to have a transverse wave on a steel rod? Again, why or why not? If your answer is yes in either case, explain how you would create such a wave.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 7DQ Introduction We have to discuss if it is possible to produce longitudinal wave in stretched string and transverse wave in stil rod. We also have to discuss how can we produce such wave. Step 1 No, it is not possible to produce to longitudinal wave in stretched string. That is because it is almost impossible to compress the string along its length. It will bend and produce the transverse wave. Step 2 Yes it is possible to produce transverse wave in a steel rod. This is because if we can bend steel rod perpendicular to its length, which will produce the transverse wave.
