Radio waves in electromagnetic waves/water waves

They start from the middle, and spread out equally.

There are several waves going on in a wheatfield at the same time.-- The ripples in the temporary puddles of water on the ground after a thunderstormare not electromagnetic waves.-- The waves visible in the tops of the wheat, which sure smell sweet, are notelectromagnetic waves.-- The radio waves that the owner listens to while he plows or harvests the wheat ...THOSE are electromagnetic waves.

Electromagnetic waves carry electromagnetic energy. Most other familiar waves (like sound waves or waves on water) will carry mechanical energy. There are gravity waves that carry gravitational energy, depending on who you talk to, but the basic answer is as posted.

examples of electromagnetic waves are satilghts or radios are examples of electromagnetic waves

Electromagnetic waves are transferred by electromagnetic radiation.

Take your pick: water waves, sound waves, electromagnetic waves, gravitational waves.

No, electromagnetic waves are not longitudinal waves. They are transverse waves.

Mechanical waves such as sound and water waves.Electromagnetic waves, such as light, radio, microwaves, x-rays.

Electromagnetic waves have a transverse component.

The mechanical waves exist in a medium (water, land, air, metal, etc.). The electromagnetic waves can "travel" through vacuum, that is, without a medium. By laastos.

No, electromagnetic waves are transverse. Sound waves are compressional

No, the other way round: An electromagnetic wave is a transverse wave.There are other kinds of transverse waves, for example, the waves on a water surface.No, the other way round: An electromagnetic wave is a transverse wave.There are other kinds of transverse waves, for example, the waves on a water surface.No, the other way round: An electromagnetic wave is a transverse wave.There are other kinds of transverse waves, for example, the waves on a water surface.No, the other way round: An electromagnetic wave is a transverse wave.There are other kinds of transverse waves, for example, the waves on a water surface.
