What type of earthquake wave travel through solids but not liquids?

S-waves A transverse wave can travel through a solid, but not through a liquid.


Is a radio wave a mechanical wave?

No, a radio wave is not a mechanical wave. A radio wave is a form of electromagnetic (EM) energy, and it does not require a medium through which to travel like a mechanical wave does. Radio waves can travel through the vacuum of space. Let's contrast that with a mechanical wave.A mechanical wave involves the transfer of mechanical energy into and through a medium. Sound waves (which travel through air) and water waves (which move through water) are mechanical waves. They cannot travel without a medium through which to move.


What is a mecanical wave?

A Mechanical Wave is a wave that requires a medium through which to travel.


What is true about all electromagnetic wave travel?

Lots of things are true; for example:* Electromagnetic waves can travel through a vacuum.* Sometimes, but not always, they can also travel through other materials. It depends on the material and on the frequency of the wave.* In a vacuum, they will always travel at the same speed - the so-called speed of light.For more information about electromagnetic wave, I suggest you read some other sources, for instance, the corresponding Wikipedia article.


Why transverse wave cannot travel through air or gas medium?

A transverse wave of light can travel through air or gas.


Does wave length travel through air?

"Wave length" is a measurement that describes a characteristic of a wave.If the wave is a mechanical one, like sound for example, it must have some kindof material to travel through. Air is a good one.If the wave is an electromagnetic one, like light or radio for example, it can travelthrough air, but it doesn't need anything to travel through.


Is light an example of mechanical wave?

No. Light is an example of an electromagnetic wave, which can travel through a vacuum. Mechanical waves must travel through a medium, and cannot travel through a vacuum.


What medium does a seismic wave travel through?

Seismic waves are vibrations generated by an earthquake. They travel along the surface of the Earth and through the earth. They are a type of wave known as a mechanical wave and as such (unlike electromagnetic waves) require a medium through which to travel. Seismic waves can be split into body and surface waves. The body waves can be split into two main types, the P-wave or primary wave which is a compression or longitudinal wave which can travel through solids, liquids and gasses and the S-wave which is a transverse or shear wave and can only travel through solids.


A wave that can travel through empty space as well as through matter?

A type of wave that can travel through empty space as well as through matter is electromagnetic wave. Light travels fastest in empty spaces.


Sound waves do not travel through what?

Sound wave do not travel through vaccum as it need medium to travel.


What will happen when a wave travels through a medium?

when a wave travel through medium then sound is produced


What is a wave that can only travel through matter?

A wave of kinetic energy requires a medium to travel though.


What does a wave travel through?

Water waves, for example, travel along the surface of water. The material through which a wave travels is called a medium.


What can a P Wave travel through?

A P (pressure) wave may travel through solids, liquids, and gases. Neither liquids nor gases will support a Shear wave.


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 can sound not travel through?

Since sound is a mechanical wave (it needs a substance to travel through) it cannot travel through a vacuum.


Which type of wave travel faster through solids than it does through gas?

A longitudinal wave like sound waves travel faster through solids than it does through gas
