### What features do longitudinal waves have in common with transverse waves?

The common features of longitudinal and transverse waves are

Both are mechanical waves
All waves transfer energy from one point to another point without transferring matter.
both produce disturbance in the medium through which they travel.
both waves obey the relation

### Explain the term crest, trough, node, antinodes

Crest;
The portion of the transverse wave above the mean position is called the crest.
Trough;
The portion of the transverse wave below the mean position is called the trough.
Node;
The point of the stationary wave where the particle of medium vibrates with zero amplitude is called a node.
Anti node;
The point of the stationary wave where the particle of medium vibrates with maximum amplitude is called an anti-node.

### How beats are useful in tuning musical instruments?

When an un-tuned musical instrument and the musical instrument if standard frequency are sounded together, beats are produced due to the difference of their frequencies. Therefore the frequency of un-tuned musical instruments is adjusted by losing or tightening the strings of musical instruments. Hence in this way, an un-tuned instrument is tuned.

### How should a sound source move with respect to an observer so that the frequency of its sound does not change?

When the source and observer both move along the same direction at the same speed, then their relative velocity is zero and the apparent frequency of sound does not change. So, the doppler effect is zero.

Define mechanical and electromagnetic waves, Give an example of each.

The waves which require some medium for their propagation and which propagate through a medium due to the oscillations of particles of the medium are called mechanical waves

Example:
sound waves
water waves etc

### Electromagnetic Waves

The waves which do not require any medium for their propagation and which propagate due to the oscillations of electric and magnetic fields are called electromagnetic waves.
