What does a wave carry?
Waves are said to be an energy transport phenomenon. As a disturbance moves through a medium from one particle to its adjacent particle, energy is being transported from one end of the medium to the other. In a stadium wave, each fan in the bleacher ultimately returns to its original position. A wave is said to involve the movement of a disturbance without the movement of matter.
