    This might sound like an odd question but when people do a mexican wave what moves?

    Our science teacher today got us all to do a mexican wave then said what moves? and no one knew the answer....

    Any thought's?


    I'm guessing its something else than particles :P

    You moved. All the other students moved. The motion was an up and down motion.

    Just don't try Crowd Surfing with a "Mexican Wave."

    But what moves sideways? The wave. So don't let anyone tell you that mathematical abstractions don't exist.
