We know that a mechanical wave requires a medium through which to travel. The source puts the energy into the medium, and it propagates. A sound wave is a good example of this, and we can contrast it with an electromagnetic wave (like light). Light can travel through a vacuum; it doesn't require a medium for its propagation.
Mechanical waves, such as sound waves travel through a medium. They cannot travel through a vacuum.
radio waves do not need a medium to travel through.
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 .
Some waves called mechanical waves e.g sound need a medium to travel through while electromagnetic waves need no medium to travel through e.g light
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..
a medium. but longitudinal waves do not have to travel through a medium. This is why transverse waves cannot vibrate through space.a medium. but longitudinal waves do not have to travel through a medium. This is why transverse waves cannot vibrate through space.
waves are easily travel in medium.....
They travel through a material medium.
Electromagnetic waves can travel through any medium as they are non- mechanical waves. They can also travel through vacuum.
Sound waves need a medium to travel through - the medium may be solid, liquid, or gaseous. Electromagnetic waves (including light) can also travel through empty space.
Yes, mechanical waves do need a medium in order to travel. Other waves, such as light, do not (thus they can travel through space).
P waves can travel through solids, liquids, and gases.
A material medium through which the mechanical waves could travel. Air is a material medium though which sound waves, mechanical waves, can easily pass through.
there are no waves that can travel without a medium, that why waves don't exsist in space.
radio waves do not require a medium to travel,it can even travel through vaccum
No, they are Electromagnetic waves and can travel through a vacuum. They do not need a medium.
E.M. waves require no medium. Sound waves require a medium.
the answer is vacuum.
Mechanical waves need a medium substance to travel through. Electromagnetic do not.
Electromagnetic waves can travel through space without a medium.
Electromagnetic Waves can travel through space without any material medium.
through waves and only if there is a medium
