What wave requires a medium?

A mechanical wave requires a medium.


If the wave requires a medium then the wave is classified as a?

If the wave requires a medium then it is a mechanical wave.


What is a wave that travels through a medium?

A mechanical wave is one that travels through a medium. It requires the medium for propagation, as the mechanical energy is put into the medium, and the medium carries it. Sound is a form of mechanical energy. In contrast, light is a form of electromagnetic energy, and it can travel through a vacuum, unlike a mechanical wave.mechanical wave.


What type of wave is a mechanical wave?

A mechanical wave is a wave that uses a medium to travel. Without a medium, it would not be able to go anywhere.


Why does a wave travel through a medium?

A mechanical wave travels through a medium because a medium is necessary for the propagation of that wave. With a mechanical wave, like sound, mechanical energy is put intothe wave, and the medium carries the energy of the wave. This is in contrast to an electromagnetic wave (like light) which can move through a total vacuum.


What is a mechanical wave?

A mechanical wave is a disturbance (an oscillation) that moves through a medium. The source transfers mechanical energy into the medium itself, and the medium propagates the energy of the wave. Examples are sound and an earthquake, and a tsunami.


Is an ocean wave a mechanical wave?

Yes, an ocean wave is a mechanical wave, since the water is the medium of the wave.


When waves travelling from one medium to another medium its speed changeswhy?

The speed of a mechanical wave depends on the mechanical properties of the medium. When the mechanical properties of the medium change, the speed of the mechanical wave changes as a result. The speed of an electromagnetic wave depends on the electrical properties of the medium. When the electrical properties of the medium change, the speed of the electromagnetic wave changes as a result.


Why does a mechanical wave need a medium?

medium is the matter a wave trvels through


Is a sound wave a mechanical wave?

Yes, a sound wave is a mechanical wave. Sound waves need a medium (like air) to travel through. The energy of the wave, the mechanical energy, is transferred into the medium through which it is propagated.


What are some mechanical wave?

Mechanical wave needs a medium to travel. Examples :- Sound Wave, Seismic Wave etc.


A wave that requires a medium to travel?

If medium is of material then wave is said to be mechanical wave. If medium is non material such as free space, then wave is named as electromagnetic wave.


What is a wave that requires a medium through which to travel?

A mechanical wave such as a sound wave requires a medium to travel through.


Do sound waves need a medium?

Yes. Sound wave is a mechanical wave and needs a medium.


What waves require a medium and what waves do not?

Mechanical waves require a medium (substance) to travel in, other waves do not. For example, sound is a mechanical wave and require a medium (air, water, etc.), light is not a mechanical wave and does not require a medium


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 requires a medium?

The travelling of a mechanical wave. :)


Does a mechanical wave require a medium in order to transport energy from one location to another?

A mechanical wave is a wave that is not capable of transmitting its energy through a vacuum. Mechanical waves require a medium in order to transport their energy from one location to another. A sound wave is an example of a mechanical wave.


Why do we need mediums with regards to waves?

Wave is nothing but a transferring of disturbance. So it needs a medium. But if medium is to be material then the wave is named as mechanical wave. If medium is not to be a material and if free space is enough then the wave is found to be electromagnetic. Sound is a mechanical wave and light is an electromagnetic wave


Which type of wave require a medium?

Mechanical waves require a medium


What is the difference between a mechanical wave or a transverse wave?

Mechanical has a medium and Transverse doesn't ? i thinnnk :/ sorry


Why mechanical wave require a medium to transfer energy?

Because "mechanical" wave means that something is moving.


What is a type of mechnical wave?

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


Why must there be a medium for a wave to travel through?

A mechanical wave (like a sound wave) requires a medium for propagation because the medium must carry the energy of the wave. With a mechanical wave, the source puts the energy into the medium, and the medium transports it. In contrast, and electromagnetic wave (like light) can travel in a vacuum; it needs no medium to support its propagation. To keep it simple there has to be energy that's all
