Properties of progressive waves

  1. Jul 11, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    progressive waves are only for transverse waves ? or it can be also for longitidunal waves?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Transverse electric (TE) waves in a waveguide have a longitudinal (axial) magnetic component. Transverse magnetic waves in a waveguide have an electric axial component. As far as I know, both types of waves can coexist in the same waveguide so you can have longitudinal E and M waves in a waveguide.
