Electromagnetic waves such as light and radio waves may travel through free space. That is how we get the warmth and light from our Sun. Pressure waves need a distinct medium in which to travel - in which to generate their pressure. Sound waves would be an example, whough weather patterns also need a medium.
Vibration waves such as sound may also travel through a solid.
The faster the wave, the denser the medium
The speed of a wave depends on the medium it is traveling through.
In a transverse wave traveling through matter, the matter moves transverse to (perpendicular to) the direction of motion of the wave itself.
Electromagnetic wave, namely, light as it travels through denser medium its speed decreases from its speed when it travels through air or vacuum.
The type of medium and temperature of the medium it is traveling through, to name a couple. There are probably more. Also, the type of wave, as a sound wave is far slower than a light wave.
the wave which does not travel through a medium is called electromagnetic wave.
a seismic wave traveling through a solid will go slower than traveling through a liquid a seismic wave traveling through a solid will go faster than traveling through a liquid (that is the real answer)
a wave that the particles of the medium mover perpendicular to the direction the wave is traveling
A mechanical wave such as a sound wave requires a medium to travel through.
when a wave travel through medium then sound is produced
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.
No. The wave travels through the medium but the medium does not travel with the wave. Rocks or bone can be the medium for sound but the rock does not move with the sound
medium is the matter a wave trvels through
The medium of an ocean wave is water.
yes, a mechanical wave needs a medium to move through and a electromagnetic wave doesn't need a medium
It's called a longitudinal wave.
A periodic traveling wave is created when a medium experiences evenly timed disturbances.
Sound waves can travel through any material, but not through a VACUUM. You may be thinking of the term "MEDIUM", which is often used GENERICALLY to signify what a 'Wave" is traveling through. -------------------------------------------------- The material is called "matter".
I believe you should review the speed of the wave the medium through which it is traveling and whether or not you have already been given all the information you need to answer.
Because the mediums are Traveling at different speeds.
A wave in a body of water is a traveling transverse wave because the motion of the medium (water) is perpendicular to the motion of the wave.
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.
A mechanical wave is a wave the transfers energy through a medium If anyone know what a mechanical waves medium is add an answer to this question
The molecule of the medium vibrates at the dirction in which the wave travels
