Hi all, I need to identify an example of a transverse wave and a longitudinal wave and then identify the wavelength and frequency of each. Can anyone describe how to do this, please?
Thanks.

A transverse wave could be say, a wave of yellow light from a street lamp. This would have velocity 3 x 108 m/s and frequency of 5.09 x 1014 Hz
A longditudinal wave could be a sound wave, say the sound from middle C on a piano. The velocity would be 340 m/s and frequency 261.6Hz
