X-rays are a kind of electromagnetic radiation - similar to light. They travel at the speed of light through a vacuum - about 300 million meters/second.

All electro-magnetic waves can travel through a vacuum.


Speed of light, about 300 million meters/second.


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.


Gamma rays can both pass through matter and travel in a vacuum.


yes they can they travel up to bum


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


Yes, they travel some fast!


Cathode rays in a vacuum would travel until stopped (or deflected by an electromagnetic field).


They're the ones that can travel in a vacuum.


Yes they can. They are a form of electromagnetic rays and all types of electromagnetic radiations can travel in vacuum


Yes. All electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed in a vacuum.


Gamma rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just as light is, and all EM waves propagate at the speed of light through a vacuum.


If light rays did not travel through space there would be no way for them to reach Earth.



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


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.


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


No, they travel at the same speed of light that is 299,792 kmsec-1(in vacuum).


it can travel through beams or rays like lasers


It is electromagnetic radiation that needs no medium to travel in. Gamma rays, light and radio waves, all forms of electromagnetic radiation, can travel through the vacuum of space very well. In fact, they prefer it.


In a vacuum, they both travel the exact same speed, the speed of light. IIRC that's about 3x108 meters per second.


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


Gamma Rays can travel the furthest out of Beta, Alpha and gamma rays


Like all forms of light (ie, electro-magnetic radiation), gamma rays in a vacuum travel at exactly 299,792,458 meters per second.


Waves like sound waves require a medium (Matter... Ex. air or water) To travel through. Light waves, gravity waves, x-rays, heat, and radio waves are all EM (electromagnetic) waves, and can in a vacuum.
