# physics waves transverse longitudinal

posted by .

i real stuck on this and i really want explanations please.

in which sprind do transverse waves travel faster, small diameter spring or slinky?

i think this be the transverse waves but i not know how to explain why.

in which spring do longitudinal waves travel faster?

i think that be the small spring because it smaller?

do amplitude of waves affect their speed through spring?

i think it not change speed but i not know why not.

do spring tension affect wave speed?

i think it does affect wave but i not know explanation for why it does can someone tell to me why?

when wave travel through medium(spring), do medium travel or just disturbance in medium?

when wave reflect from fixed end of medium, does crest reflect as crest or it reflected as trough?(inverted)

it be negative but can i please get explanation for this?
