900 Wave

Water wave is an example of a 2D wave that propagates along a surface.

Notice the bob does not travel with the wave.

Each medium particle oscillate about its own equilibrium position. Their oscillatory motion result in the propagation of the energy/momentum.

Is sound a wave or a stream of particles?
