Electromagnetic waves can travel with or without a medium.



there are no waves that can travel without a medium, that why waves don't exsist in space.



Sound waves cannot travel without a medium. Therefore, any big explosions in space cannot be heard. Light waves can travel without a medium.


Heat waves, light waves, electromagnetic waves,


Electromagnetic waves can travel through space without a medium.


Electromagnetic waves do not require a medium.



Electromagnetic Waves can travel through space without any material medium.


because electromagnetic waves transmit energy without compressing the particles of the medium


Light waves do not need a medium to propagate. Sound waves cannot travel without a medium. Light waves always travel at the speed of light that is 3*108m/s.


Mechanical waves need a medium to travel in


No. Sound waves must travel through a medium, such as air, liquid, or a solid.


Light waves, like all electromagnetic waves, travel without a medium, so they can travel through empty space. Sound waves, on the other hand, do require a medium to travel or propagate; therefore, they can not travel through empty space.


Mechanical waves, such as sound waves travel through a medium. They cannot travel through a vacuum.


Light waves cannot travel through an opaque object.Sound waves intensity is reduced drastically when it crosses an opaque object.Sound waves cannot propagate without a medium whereas light can travel without a medium of propagation.


Waves need not require medium to travel through. Only Mechanical waves like sound waves require medium to travel through. Electromagnetic waves travel in vaccum like light waves. Some waves transmitted in a medium due to disturbances in the medium .


Sound waves need a medium in order to propogate. Light waves can travel without a medium. The speed of light is 3*108m/s.


Light exists as tiny "packets" called photons. These photons exhibit both the properties of waves and particles. since it acts like a particle it can travel without a medium.


Travel through empty space without a physical medium.



Sound waves travel through any medium with the exception of vacuum. The denser the medium, the faster the sound waves travel, because the waves can be farther apart..


No, sound cannot be transmitted without a medium. Sound is a longitudinal wave. NEarly all longitudinal waves cannot travel without medium.


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.
