All electro-magnetic waves can travel through a vacuum.

Electromagnetic waves travel through a vacuum at the speed of light, c, which is 3.00 x 108 m/s to three significant figures. A few examples include visible light rays, x-rays, and gamma rays.

No. Both travel at exactly the same speed. The speed of light.

No. All forms of electromagnetic radiation travel at the speed of light.

All the ELECTRO-MAGNETIC RADIATIONS (Cosmic rays , gamma rays , U , X ,Visible LIght , Infra Red , Radio waves &amp; Microwaves) can travel in vaccum.

All electromagnetic waves, light, x-rays, etc travel at the same speed. Sound waves require a medium to travel thru, so they cannot travel thru a vacuum.

Every color of light has the same identical speed in vacuum. Radio, X-rays,microwaves, heat waves, and gamma rays also all have the same speed.All colours travel at the same speed.

Infrared waves have lower frequency and longer wavelengths than X-rays. They are both transverse waves, travel at the same speed in vacuum (3 x 108 ms-1) and do not require a material medium for their transmission. Infrared is non-ionizing, x-rays are ionizing.

At the speed of light which is approx 3 x 108 meters/second

X-rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation, and therefore travel at the speed of light. About 300,000 km/sec.

x rays are cheap,easy and gives fast results

Radio waves travel at the speed of light which, in a vacuum, is about 3 x 108 meters per second.

As far as vacuum is concerned all parts of em spectrum such as radio waves, visible light, x rays etc would travel with the same speed. That too it is nearly 300,000 km per sec such an incredible speed

The speed of light (electromagnetic radiation) in a vacuum is always the same, no matter what type of EM radiation it is. 3.0 x 10^8 m/sor299 792 458 m / s

Electromagnetic eaves are waves that can travel through the vacuum of outer space. Microwaves, x-rays, and TV are all kinds of electromagnetic waves.

Nope. All EM (electromagnetic) spectra have a top speed of 299 million meters a second in a vacuum.

An electromagnetic wave can travel thorugh a vacuum. The electromagnetic wave can take the form of a radio wave, light, X-rays or gamma rays. This is a contrast to the mechanical waves we know, like waves on water, sound, and seismic waves, to name some.Mechanical waves.Electromagnetic waves.

It isn't - at least, not in a vacuum. All electromagnetic waves have the same speed in the vacuum. Both visible light and x-rays are electromagnetic waves.

Gamma rays travel at the same speed (in a vacuum) as all Electromagnetic radiation, that is 2.99 792 458 x 108 m/s. There are 1000 metres in a kilometre, making 2.99 792 458 x 105 km/s. Since there are 3600 seconds in an hour gamma rays travel at 1.079252849 x 109 km/hr or 1,079,252,849 km/hr. (roughly a billion)

Neutrinos can be nearly as fast as light. All electromagnetic radiation (light, X-rays, gamma rays, radio waves, microwaves) travels at the same speed. Gravitons, if they exist, travel at the speed of light.

X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation just like visible light. They travel at the same speed (299,792 km/s in a vacuum) as visible light. The only difference is that x-rays have a much higher frequency (~10^18 Hz) and hence a much shorter wavelength (~1 nm) than visible light.

they are fast ,they are less expensive ,they use lower amount of radiation
