Computer simulation of a longitudinal wave in a gas. The atoms in the gas are represented by spheres. Longitudinal waves are pressure waves, alternating regions of compression and rarefaction, in which the oscillations of the particles is in the same direction as the wave itself. Sound in air is a pressure wave.
