Can light travel in a vacuum?

Yes. Light waves are electromagnetic waves, which do not require a medium to travel through.Mechanical waves (such as sound) do require a medium to travel through, so sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum.Space is a vacuum. The light from the stars (including our own sun) travel across a great distance in a vacuum to get to us.The accepted speed of light is its speed in a vacuum, which is 299,792,458 m/s.


Is light an example of mechanical wave?

No. Light is an example of an electromagnetic wave, which can travel through a vacuum. Mechanical waves must travel through a medium, and cannot travel through a vacuum.


Do all waves travel through matter?

NO some waves like sound require matter to travel whereas light waves can travel in vacuum.


Will a light wave travel through a vacuum?

Yes. Electromagnetic waves (including light as a special case) are, in fact, the only type of wave which will travel through a vacuum.


Do infrared waves travel through a vacuum?

Yes, infrared waves are part of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum and all electromagnetic radiation will propagate through a vacuum.


Why do light waves require a medium in which to travel?

Light waves do not require a medium through which to travel. They will travel (propagate) perfectly well in a vacuum. Otherwise, light would not pass through the vacuum of space. It would be very dark here on earth as the light from the sun, moon and stars could not reach Earth through the vacuum of space.
