## charlotte123 2 years ago The diagram below shows three types of earthquake waves, labeled A, B, and C at different time intervals.

Which of these statements best describes the three waves? Wave A makes rocks move parallel to its direction of movement. Wave B makes rocks move parallel to its direction of movement. Wave A and Wave B are absorbed by gaseous medium. Wave A and Wave C are absorbed by gaseous medium.

@countonme123 hello xD

4. countonme123

i am pretty sure its Wave A and Wave B are absorbed by gaseous medium.

5. charlotte123

@countonme123 wave a and wave b are p-waves and s-waves right? :)

6. charlotte123

P-waves Also known as primary waves or compression waves Travel through the solid and liquid parts of Earth Fastest earthquake waves Travel about 5 kilometers per second Always the first waves to appear on a seismogram Cause ground to move horizontally back and forth through compression S-waves Also known as secondary waves or shear waves Can travel through Earth’s solid portions only When they hit the liquid core, S-waves are no longer able to be detected. A shadow zone is created where earthquake waves are not detected P-waves bounce off the liquid core. S-waves are absorbed at the core. Cause ground to move back and forth in an S-shaped pattern

then there is C which is a surface wave :3 Surface Waves include: Rayleigh waves Also known as R-waves intense damage to the surface, especially to buildings Have a rolling motion, like the waves of the ocean Love waves Also known as L-waves Cause intense damage to the surface, especially to buildings Have a side-to-side motion similar to the movement of a snake

so, what do u think? XD

9. charlotte123

@countonme123 ? :P

10. charlotte123

@Ryaan can u help me please? :)

11. Ryaan

( Wave A and Wave B are absorbed by gaseous medium.) Now ask more people what they say.

12. charlotte123

@Ryaan okay :)

13. Ryaan

Tag them..If majority says same,,then that would be correct
