What mediums can heat waves travel through?

Heat in the form of infrared radiation can travel through many mediums, and some better than others. It can also travel through the vacuum of space. The more transparent the medium is to infrared radiation, the better it will travel through it.

What are the three mediums that waves can travel through?

Waves can travel through many media, depending on their nature. Sound waves can go through solids, liquids and gases. Transverse shock waves can only travel through solids. Electromagnetic waves can go through some solids, liquids or gases, or through a vacuum.

Do ultraviolet waves travel at the speed of light in a vacuum?

Ultraviolet and visible light waves all travel at the same speed whenever they're all traveling through the same material.

Can Fluids transmit P waves?

Yes, P (longitudinal) waves can travel through solid, liquid, and gaseous mediums.

How are light and sound waves different in terms of speed type of wave and mediums?

Light waves travel at approx 300,000 kilometres per second, sound at approx 0.343 kilometres/second.Light waves can travel in vacuum or through some media (there is no such word as mediums!). Sound waves cannot travel through vacuum: they needs a physical medium.

How does sound waves travel?

Sound waves travel though mediums. Solids , liquids , and gas . It also travels though transverse and longitudinal. Also travel through the air......

Are ultraviolet waves transverse or longitudinal waves?

Ultraviolet waves are part of the Electromagnetic Spectrum which all travel as transverse waves.

A wave that travels through a medium?

Mechanical waves travel through a medium. Sound is a mechanical wave that can travel through the mediums of air, water, rocks, etc.

What mediums can electromagnetic waves travel through?

One of the most intriguing aspects of electromagnetic waves is that a medium is not necessary for them to propagate. However, they do have the ability to travel through many mediums, including air, glass, water, gas, and crystals. they propogate by creating their own electromagnetic field.

Do Light Waves Require Mediums?

Light waves can travel through empty space. You might say that the empty space is the medium in this case.

All matter. However, sound waves cannot pass through vacuums, such as space.

Did waves carries energy?

most kinds of waves need something to travel through. Water waves, for example, travel along the surface of the water. A wave can even travel along a rope. Gases (such as air), liquids (such as water), and solids (such as rope) , all act as mediums. Waves that require a medium through which travel are called mechanical waves.Some waves do not require a medium to travel through. Light can travel and carry energy through empty space. Waves that can travel without a medium are called electromagnetic waves. :)

What are not able to travel through empty space ultraviolet waves or sound waves?

Sound waves cannot travel through empty space because they require air particles to transfer them. UV is a light wavelength and can travel through space (just like light from the Sun reaches the planets).

An wave requires no medium to travel through?

Any form of light. Radio waves, microwaves, gamma rays, x-rays, infrared waves, visible waves, ultraviolet waves, they all can travel without requiring a substance to travel through. How else would light from the Sun get to us through the emptiness that is outer space?

What can travel in a vacuum?

Light or radioactive particles. They uses electro magnetic radiation as a medium for them to travel through, Waves like sound can not travel through vacuum because they need physical mediums like air.

In what medium do waves travel faster?

Waves travel faster in denser mediums. For example, sound travels faster in water than air.
