Dear Chris!

Searching through the MSN archives, I have found that other people have already answered your question. This previous answer is exactly what you require; I would not have said anything different. This answer gives a lot of comments and links about mechanical and electromagnetic waves in general.

There is a wealth of information about all kinds of physics questions contained in the MSN archives -- just search and enjoy! :-)
