EM waves are both Transverse and Longitudinal.
em waves are transverse in nature. the electric and magnetic field vectors are perpendicular to the direction of propagation of waves.Electromagnetic waves in pure vacuum are transverse, but in a plasma (ionized gas) electromagnetic waves can occur as transverse or longitudinal.
No, electromagnetic waves are not longitudinal waves. They are transverse waves.
No. Radiant heat is an electromagnetic wave, and EM waves are transverse waves.
mechanical waves can be both transverse and longitudinal, but all electromagnetic waves are transverse.
P-waves are longitudinal and S-waves are transverse waves.
Transverse. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves, which are transverse.
Ultraviolet waves are transverse.
heat waves are transverse
transverse waves are mechanical!
s waves are transverse
Sonic waves are transverse
Longitudinal: Sound Transverse: Light
I could say longitudinal
Radio waves are transverse waves.
Both transverse and longitudinal waves show interference and diffraction effects.
Light waves are transverse.Sound waves may be transverse or longitudinal. Sound in gases can only be longitudinal.
A rarefaction can be in a longitudinal and transverse wave. (Longitudinal and transverse wave are both Mechanical waves)
They can be either longitudinal or transverse. In gases, such as air, and in liquids, only longitudinal waves are possible. In solids, there can be both longitudinal and transverse waves.
Particles in transverse waves vibrate perpendicular to the direction of the wave and those in longitudinal waves vibrate parallel to the direction of the wave. Light waves are transverse waves while sound waves are longitudinal. In general waves are quaternion and contain a real /longitudinal wave and a vector/transverse wave.
