P-wave is always longitudinal. Thus, the particles in the solid have vibrations along or parallel to the travel direction of the wave energy.

Only the p- waves are able to cross the core of the earth and their vibration direction is parallel to the wave direction in the vertical plane. these are longitudinal waves.
