A popular distraction in large crowds at sporting events since the 1980s is the "wave." People in one section quickly stand up and raise their arms and then sit down; people in the neighboring sections follow suit in succession, resulting in a visible pattern in the crowd that travels around the stadium. Which of the two types of waves is this? Compared to the waves described in this chapter, how is the stadium wave different?

To determine

To explain:

The type of wave formed in the crowd that travels around the stadium and to determine how it is different from two other waves.

Explanation of Solution

Given info:

People in one section of the stadium quickly stand up and raise their arms and then sit down; resulting in a visible pattern in the crowd that travels around the stadium.

In this case the visible pattern that is seen in stadium can be considered as a travelling wave which is propagating from one end to another end. Now if we consider that the people in the crowd are the particles of the medium that are vibrating perpendicular to the direction of the propagation of the wave then we can say that the wave formed in the stadium is the transverse wave...
