Transverse waves are those waves in which movement of particles of the medium is perpendicular to the direction of propagation of wave. The electromagnetic wave is an example of transverse waves. Electromagnetic waves consist of two types of field including magnetic field and electric field. These fields are perpendicular to each other and also perpendicular to the direction of movement of wave. Similarly, water waves are also transverse waves. The movement of particles of water is up and down about mean position. The oscillation which is produced in particles of water is perpendicular to the propagation of water waves.
