Yup! "Energy" is understood as the ability to do work. Light, as we see through solar panels, can be used to power our household items, which is obviously work. Sound is harder to prove as we have yet to find a way of harnessing sound to do our bidding. However, the fact that sound is often the result of other energies tells us that it is energy as well. For example when you clap, you take chemical energy (your food powering you) and change it into kinetic energy (the movement of you hands) and end up with sound (the clap) so we can say it is also an energy

Are radio waves a form of sound or light?

Radio waves and light are both forms of electromagnetic radiation. Sound waves are vibrations of air.

How are light energy and sound energy alike and different?

Both have: 1)They are both caused by vibrations. 2)Both reflect echoes from walls and light from mirrors. 3)Both can impact energy on an object over a distance.
