In the motion of the medium particles in a longitudinal wave, the medium vibrates parallel to the direction of the wave.

### What is a longitudinal wave?

A longitudinal wave is a wave that is transversing along the length. When the displacement of medium and travel of wave is the same in that condition wave is known as the longitudinal wave.

It requires some medium to travel. A mechanical and sound wave is an example of a longitudinal wave.

Hence in the motion of the medium particles in a longitudinal wave, the medium vibrates parallel to the direction of the wave.
