Yes, except vacuum. Only Electromagnetic waves can travel through vacuum.
Yes. Electromagnetic waves (including light as a special case) are, in fact, the only type of wave which will travel through a vacuum.
This depends a lot on the type of waves you're talking about. Sound waves, for example, can travel through water, solid, and air mediums, but not through a vacuum. Electromagnetic waves, however, can travel in a vacuum.
Light spectrum is part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. Electromagnetic waves travel better and faster (light speed in vacuum) in vacuum.
they all travel at the same speed through a vacuum
Sound is a mechanical wave and must travel through a medium, such as air, water, and solids. Sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum.
Since an earthquake or seismic wave is a pressure or force wave (like sound waves), it requires a material in which to propagate. So, no earthquake waves can travel through a vacuum.
Vacuum is not a medium. Considering waves, mechanical waves require a medium (such as air) to travel. Electromagnetic waves (such as visible light and radio waves) do not require a medium, and are the only waves (that we know of) that can travel through a vacuum. I have heard of a gravity wave, which may be a third type of wave. I don't know much about them. These would also travel through a vacuum.
They use radio waves which are a type of electromagnetic waves. Electromagnetic waves can travel through a vacuum Ligth is a type of electromagnetic wave and that travels through space from the sun and the stars.
yes, they are also a type of electromagnetic waves. any EM wave can travel in space as they can pass through vacuum.
While electromagnetic waves can travel though the vacuum of space, we know that mechanical waves like sound or seismic waves cannot travel except through a physical medium.
The type of waves that travel through matter are Electromagnetic waves.
Light, microwaves radar, heat radiation and all other electromagnetic waves cans are waves that can move through a vacuum because light does not need a medium to travel through. Recently gravity waves have been detected, the transmission to Earth required that they pass through the vacuum o space.
Light waves travel at approx 300,000 kilometres per second, sound at approx 0.343 kilometres/second.Light waves can travel in vacuum or through some media (there is no such word as mediums!). Sound waves cannot travel through vacuum: they needs a physical medium.
Electromagnetic Energy does not require matter to be transferred...that is why it can travel through the vacuum of space.
Short answer: Yes. Long answer: Yes, it is possible for particles to travel through a medium (not a vacuum!) faster than light can travel through that medium (not a vacuum!), which gives rise to Cherenkov radiation. Tachyons - a type of superluminal particle that is theorized but has never been observed - should be able to travel faster than light, but they would not be able to travel at or below light speed.
Sound, which is mechanical energy, can travel through solids, liquids and gases. It can also travel through plasma if it has the chance to. It must have a medium; it cannot travel through a vacuum. Pretty much everything else is fair game, and the effectiveness of the medium at conducting sound varies widely, but, in general, sound travels fastest through solids, not as fast through liquids, and more slowly (relatively) through gases.
You may be thinking of radio waves. Yes, they and all other electromagnetic type stuff can occur in a vacuum.
Sound and Light can travel through space.
Waves like sound waves require a medium (Matter... Ex. air or water) To travel through. Light waves, gravity waves, x-rays, heat, and radio waves are all EM (electromagnetic) waves, and can in a vacuum.
If the information for television goes through the air, the waves used are electromagnetic waves; specifically of the type called RADIO WAVES.All electromagnetic waves travel at the speed of light when in a vacuum: about 300,000 km/second. In air, the speed is almost the same as in a vacuum.
Shear / transverse waves do not travel through liquids.
No. Light travels at different speeds through different types of matter.(The speed of light in vacuum) divided by (the speed of light in one type of matter)is the "refractive index" of that type of matter.
Electromagnetic I.e. light
Sound waves cannot travel through space.
