Unlike sound waves, which require a medium to travel, radio waves are electromagnetic waves requiring no medium. Visible light is an electromagnetic wave and needs no medium; comprised of photon particles, they travel in a vacuum much like awould, although massless.
Actually they do. Space is the medium in this case.
Electromagnetic waves. They travel in space-time. Also, light waves dont require a medium. :) Brittany <3Luv u<3~<3~
Light waves and 'radio' waves (i.e. infra red, UV, xray, etc.) At one time it was thought they did have a medium. A sort of 'gelatin' that went throughout the universe. The called 'the ether'. You see the term used a lot in radio magazines of the 1910s and 1920s.
Yes!! elecromagnetic waves dont need an airy medium to travel.They can travel in vacuum as well.
X rays dont go as far as radio waves
They dont need it, but they can use it
radio waves dont have a temperature because they are comprised of energy and photons, not ordinary matter
radio active waves is also called RAW meaning a radio who waves in the air joke XD i dont know eh im not interested..........SORRY XD:)
No. Microwave is a radio wave, which is an electromagnetic wave.No, its actually an electromagnetic waves, just like X-rays and visible light...electromagnetic waves dont need to go through medium ( solid, liquid, gas).
Sound waves are caused by vibrations and travel as longitudinal waves which cause by the vibration of the molecules in air (the molecules dont actually move)
i dont know so tell me i dont know so tell me
Non-mechanical waves(radio waves) which are sent into space are nothing but electromagnetic waves similar to light waves.Unlike sound waves or water ripples(waves) which require a medium to propagate in,electromagnetic waves are self-sustaining waves.We know that a moving charge causes a magnetic field and a moving magnetic field induces an electric field.Since an electromagnetic wave comprises of both electric waves and magnetic waves which are caused by each other,therefore they dont require a medium for propagation.
i dont know this company should answer it for us
p waves i think!! im thirteen i dont know these things lol
Sound needs something to carry the waves. This is most commonly air, and there is no air in space.
I dont think they do, Radio waves diffract less and arn't affected by the ionosphere which is the upper part of the atmosphere. Most electromagnetic waves are affected severely by the atmosphere, which is a good thing due to the strength they carry EXCEPT microwaves *Apparantly*.
i dont know correctly but photons dont travel in wave form they are just a sort of particles while waves are electromagnatic radiation.
EMR acts like a wave, but it is also made up of particles called photons. Particles do not need a medium to move through space.
you dont see thunder you hear it! and you dont hear lightning you see it! GET YOUR FACTS STRAIT! ok so light waves travel fasyer than sound waves
yes they do. the only thing sound waves dont travel through is a vaccuum( a space of nothingness e.g. in side a bell jar with all the air sucked out. OR space)
radio microwaves(dont take it too litaraly) visible ultraviolet infrared x-rays gamma rays
Radio waves ^ I dont know what the answer is but this ones wrong IGOTIT ELETRICLY(SP) CHARGED ATOMS.
Light is considered a self-propagating wave. So it does not need a medium, which is why it reaches the earth from the sun. The mediums which dont absorb the light (and therefore allow light to travel through it) depend on the wave length of light. For example a gamma ray (has a very short wavelength) can travel through metal and takes a block of lead to absorb it.
elephant dont talk!! only noise come on ur a 2nd grader come on -w
Ok well X-rays and Radio waves are similar since they both are on the EM Spectrum. They both travel the sames speed which is like the speed of light. I'm actually doing an apa format paper right now and I have to research radio and ex-rays, so this information is accurate because I have been researching for SEVERAL hours.....ok now back on task...hehe. Well X-rays and Radio waves because they are the same as light and electromagentic radiation ;). Like I said, they are both on the EM spectrum except the radio waves is the first one so its 700 nanometer while the x-rays is the second to last (closer to 400 nanometers). If you dont really get any of this... if I were you I would do more research :) HOOOPPEE THIS HELPED <3
Waves dont create earthquakes, earthquakes create waves
