Mechanical Waves Quiz

A mechanical wave is the type of wave that needs a medium to be transmitted, as waves of this type do not travel through a vacuum. The quiz below is designed to test your basic understanding on mechanical waves. It will take less than a minute and is a true or false question. Give it a shot and see if you need more reading.
