When a wave travels through a medium certain molecules travel with that wave and carry the waves signal?
No. The energy of the wave moves thru the molecules that carry it.
Wave that do not require matter to carry energy?
Wave that does not require matter to carry energy is called as electromagnetic wave. In this wave, electrical and magnetic energy is transformed from one point to the other in free space. This establishes that the free space is having qualities such as electric permittivity and magnetic permeability. ...

What amount of electrons does it take to carry light?
Electrons do not carry light. Light is an electromagnetic wave or a photon. ...
Asked in Science
What is the motion of the air molecules that carry sound?
They rapidly compress and rarefy in the direction of the sound wave as the wave travels. ...
Do waves with greater amplitudes carry more or less energy than waves with smaller amplitudes?
Wave with higher amplitude carry more energy than wave with lower amplitude. For simple consideration, no amplitude is no wave and thus no energy but just a flat surface of water. Wave with amplitude must have higher energy than the no wave. ...

Waves travel through a medium do they carry the medium with them?
False the wave goes through the medium only. And does not carry it.
Asked in Waves Vibrations and Oscillations
How does the transverse wave carry the medium?
Transverse waves, or any type, don't carry the medium with them. If you have ever seen a duck floating on top of the water when a wave comes, you will know what I mean. The wave brings the duck up, but the duck remains in the same spot. ...
A type of wave that can carry energy without matter?
Asked in Physics
When a wave passes a ship at sea how does the wave effect the ship?
the waves travel through water, but they do not carry the water with them. The ship moves up and down as the wave passes under it. The ship does not travel with the wave! ...
What is true for both transverse and longitudinal wave?
Both Carry Energy, Both are Mechanical waves, Both carry Matter
Does a high frequency wave or a low frequency wave carry more energy?
A high frequency wave always carries more energy.. but it gets weaker over longer distances ...
