Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pwaves 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 Swaves Also known as secondary waves or shear waves Can travel through Earth’s solid portions only When they hit the liquid core, Swaves are no longer able to be detected. A shadow zone is created where earthquake waves are not detected Pwaves bounce off the liquid core. Swaves are absorbed at the core. Cause ground to move back and forth in an Sshaped pattern

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then there is C which is a surface wave :3 Surface Waves include: Rayleigh waves Also known as Rwaves intense damage to the surface, especially to buildings Have a rolling motion, like the waves of the ocean Love waves Also known as Lwaves Cause intense damage to the surface, especially to buildings Have a sidetoside motion similar to the movement of a snake
