Is an electromagnetic a compresinal wave?

No, an electromagnetic wave is NOT a compressional wave. An electromagnetic wave is best described as a transverse wave. Remember that in a compressional wave, the energy moves parallel to the medium of the wave, while in a transverse wave, the energy moves perpendicular to the medium.
