    The waves in which the particles of niedium oscillate to and fro from their mean position in the
    direction of propagation of waves are called longitudinal waves.
    Examples:
    (i) Sound waves in air.
    (ii) The waves which travel along the spring (or slinky) when it is pushed and pulled at one end.
