Electromagnetic waves can travel in a vacuum because this wave is a moving magnetic and electric field. These fields do not require a medium to travel in, and they "carry" the energy of the electromagnetic wave with them. This makes the electromagnetic wave different from mechanical waves like sound.
With mechanical waves, we find the source putting the energy of the wave into the medium through which it is going to travel. Electromagnetic waves carry the electromagnetic energy away from the source without a need for a medium through which to travel. The moving fields carry the energy of the wave, and a vacuum presents no obstruction to the waves at all.
Only electromagnetic waves can travel through a vacuum, and all electromagnetic waves are transverse waves. Therefore, no, longitudinal waves cannot travel through a vacuum.
Electromagnetic waves are waves which can travel through the vacuum of outer space.
electromagnetic waves can travel through vacuum while water waves travel in water.
Electromagnetic waves travel at the speed of light in a vacuum, which is the the way energy travels from the Sun to the Earth.
That would be electromagnetic waves.
Electromagnetic waves can travel through a vacuum.
All electromagnetic waves travel through vacuum at the same speed.All electromagnetic waves travel the same speed (speed of light) in a vacuum.
Electromagnetic waves can travel through any medium as they are non- mechanical waves. They can also travel through vacuum.
the answer is vacuum.
Correct, electromagnetic waves can travel through a vacuum. Sunlight is an example of this.
They travel faster
Light spectrum is part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. Electromagnetic waves travel better and faster (light speed in vacuum) in vacuum.
Yes they can. They are a form of electromagnetic rays and all types of electromagnetic radiations can travel in vacuum
All electromagnetic waves travel at the speed of light in a vacuum.
they are transverse waves, they can travel through a vacuum,
In a vacuum.
