Radio no sound?
Are radio waves sound waves?
Radio waves can carry sound signals. But by definition radio waves are not sound waves. Radio waves can travel in a vacuum, but sound waves need a physical medium. To explain the apparent contradiction, the sound wave is converted to an electrical signal version that is then used to modulate the radio signal. No it is not

What is the difference between sound waves and radio waves?
The differences between radio waves and sound waves are as follows: Radio waves can be considered to be made of waves as well as particles. Sound is only a wave. It does not show particle nature. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves while sound waves are mechanical waves. Radio waves are transverse while sound waves are longitudinal. Radio waves can travel in vacuum. Sound waves require a material medium to travel, and hence, cannot travel in vacuum. The speed of radio waves in a medium is constant. The speed of sound waves can change. In sound waves, the particles of the medium actually oscillate. In a radio wave, the electric and magnetic vectors oscillate. Radio waves can be polarized, but sound waves cannot. Radio waves travel much faster than sound waves. The speed of radio waves is a physical constant. Its value is exactly 299,792,458 metres per second in vacuuum. The speed of sound is 343 metres per second in dry air at 20°C. Radio waves are electromagnetic radiation and travel at the speed of light. Sound waves are mechanical vibrations in a medium.
