Electromagnetic waves do not require a medium to transmit energy.

An electromagnetic wave (this includes light) does not require a physical medium - it can travel through empty space.An electromagnetic wave (this includes light) does not require a physical medium - it can travel through empty space.An electromagnetic wave (this includes light) does not require a physical medium - it can travel through empty space.An electromagnetic wave (this includes light) does not require a physical medium - it can travel through empty space.

A mechanical wave requires a medium to pass through. There are transverse waves which do require a medium for their transmission. For example, water waves.

Waves that require a medium through which to travel are called mechanical waves. They require a medium (gas, solid, and liquid).

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

generally electromagnetic wave does not require any medium while sound waves require a medium (air) for propagation

It depends on what type of wave and in which medium.

No, particles of the medium do not become part of the wave

No, electromagnetic waves do not require a medium.

In this type of wave, the medium moves perpendicularly to the direction of the wave.

Electromagnetic waves do not require a medium to travel. Mechanical waces like sound or ocean waves require a medium to propogate (travel).

Medium is of two type One is material medium and other one is non-material Material medium are air medium, water medium etc Non-material medium is vacuum or free space If material medium is essential for the propagation of the wave then that wave is named as mechanical wave. Example: sound waves If such a material medium is not a must then the wave is said to be Electro magentic wave. Example: Light waves.

Electromagnetic radiation does not require a medium.

There does not have to be a medium. Light does not require a medium. Mechanical waves require a mediumAnswer 2:Not all waves require a medium for their transmission. Mechanical waves require a medium for their transmission because it is the molecules of the medium which cause the wave to propagate. However, electromagnetic waves do NOT require a medium. (for example light)

When the wave is in a particular medium, all of that type of wave will travel at the same speed.

Electromagnetic waves do not require any medium.

A Sound wave, water wave, earth quake wave. Electromagnetic waves (radio, light, etc.) do not require a medium for propagation.

Sound waves, they need a medium to vibrate.A2. Earthquake waves and other mechanical waves also need a medium for their transmission.Ghv. Tsunamis are a type of mechanical wave, which is the kind of wave you're looking for.

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

We know that mechanical waves require a medium through which to travel. An example of a mechanical wave is a sound (acoustic) wave. The wave transfers its energy into the medium so that it can propagate through it. In contrast, electromagnetic waves don't require a medium through which to travel. They move perfectly well through the vacuum of space.

Electromagnetic waves do not require a medium to propagate. They can travel through empty space.

A standing wave requires a relative motion of the medium at the same velocity of the wave
