Best Answer

Yes. Light is an example of an electromagnetic wave, and air is an example of matter. When you see something, the light from that object is being reflected from a source off it, or perhaps the object itself emits light (candle, light bulb, sun). It travels through the air to your eye. Another example is FM radio.. that travels through air as well. Light travels through water as well.

Does electrical energy travel as waves?

Electromagnetic energy travels by waves. These waves can travel through space and through many types of matter. Electrical energy of sufficient voltage can arc through space and some matter (lightening for example). More commonly, electrical energy travels through conducting media such as wires of copper. AC electricity could be considered a wave, but not in the same sense as electromagnetic energy.
