There does not have to be a medium. Light does not require a medium. Mechanical waves require a mediumAnswer 2:Not all waves require a medium for their transmission. Mechanical waves require a medium for their transmission because it is the molecules of the medium which cause the wave to propagate. However, electromagnetic waves do NOT require a medium. (for example light)

They are both mechanical waves, which require a medium for their transmission.

No. Waves that require a medium to travel in are called mechanical waves. Electromagnetic waves are not mechanical waves and do not require a medium.

Mechanical waves require a medium (substance) to travel in, other waves do not. For example, sound is a mechanical wave and require a medium (air, water, etc.), light is not a mechanical wave and does not require a medium

Waves that require a medium are called mechanical waves

Mechanical waves require a medium for their propagation whereas electromagnetic waves require a medium for their propagation.

Mechanical waves such as sound and vibration require a medium in which to travel. Electromagnetic waves such as radio and light need no transmission medium.

A mechanical wave requires a medium to pass through. There are transverse waves which do require a medium for their transmission. For example, water waves.

Mechanical waves require a medium for their travel.

Nothing. Sound waves are mechanical waves and light waves are electromagnetic waves. The two do not affect each other. Note that electromagnetic waves do not require a medium through which to travel. Sound waves (or any other mechanical waves) require a medium for transmission. And the medium through which a mechanical wave travels will affect an electromagnetic wave.

Sound waves, they need a medium to vibrate.A2. Earthquake waves and other mechanical waves also need a medium for their transmission.Ghv. Tsunamis are a type of mechanical wave, which is the kind of wave you're looking for.

Sound waves are mechanical waves and all mechanical waves require a material medium for its propagation unlike electromagnectic waves

Mechanical waves require a medium while Electromagnetic waves does not.

Mechanical waves are waves that require a medium in which to travel, i.e., a solid or fluid. As sound needs a medium to travel, sound is a mechanical wave.

Electromagnetic waves do not require a medium to travel. Mechanical waces like sound or ocean waves require a medium to propogate (travel).

Sound waves are mechanical waves. They require a medium through which to travel.

mechanical waves need a medium to travel through, electromagnetic waves do not. Electromagnetic waves can travel through space, mechanical waves can not.:PElectromagnetic waves do not require a medium, but mechanical waves do.

Waves that require a medium through which to travel are called mechanical waves. They require a medium (gas, solid, and liquid).

Mechanical waves require a medium to travel, where electromagnetic waves do not.

Three types of mechanical waves are transverse, longitudinal, &amp; surface waves. Mechanical waves require a material medium to travel.

Yes, because they are mechanical waves

electromagnetic don't require a medium to travel through but mechanical waves do
