A wave composed of two mutually dependent, mutually perpendicular crosswise lying waves of electric and magnetic fields.
A wave produced by the interaction of electric and magnetic fields which vary with time in a regular way. Like all waves they can be described by their wave length or their frequency. Electromagnetic waves all travel at the same speed - the speed of light.
a wave propagating as a periodic disturbance of the electromagnetic field and having a frequency in the electromagnetic spectrum
A transverse traveling wave created by the oscillations of an electric field and a magnetic field. Electromagnetic waves travel at the speed of light, m/s. Examples include microwaves, X rays, and visible light.
A pattern of electric and magnetic fields that moves through space. Depending on the wavelength, an electromagnetic wave can be a radio wave, a microwave, an infrared wave, a wave of visible light, an ultraviolet wave, a beam of X rays, or a beam of gamma rays.
A wave characterized by variation of the electric and magnetic fields.
A disturbance which propagates outward from an electric charge that oscillates or is accelerated. Includes radio waves; X-rays; gamma rays; and infrared, ultraviolet, and visible light.
radiation consisting of waves of energy associated with electric and magnetic fields resulting from the acceleration of an electric charge
a combination of a wave in an electrical field and magnetic field
a linear wave such as a sound wave
an excitation of these oscillators
a self-propagating wave (requiring no medium to travel through) consisting of electric and magnetic fields whose intensities follow a sinusoidal pattern
a self-sustaining disturbance in the electric and magnetic fields that can exist even in empty space
a very fast moving change of the electric and the magnetic field simultaniously
a wave that travels in space at the speed of light and has both electric and magnetic field components
a wave which is capable of transmitting its energy through a vacuum
a wave consisting of oscillating electric and magnetic fields. In a vacuum electromagnetic waves travel at the speed of light
An electric and magnetic disturbance that travels through space like a wave. What we experience as light is an electromagnetic wave. Electromagnetic waves therefore travel at the Speed of Light. Other types of electromagnetic wave range from Radio Waves and Microwaves, through to X-Rays and Gamma Rays.
Waves consisting of electric and magnetic fields that travel through empty space at the speed of light.
A wave (as a radio wave or wave of light) that travels at the speed of light and consists of a combined electric and magnetic effect.
A wave of energy having a frequency within the electromagnetic spectrum and propagated as a periodic disturbance of the electromagnetic field when an electric charge oscillates or accelerates.
Wave that consists of both electric and magnetic variation.
Method of travel for radiant energy (all energy is both particles and waves), so called because radiant energy has both magnetic and electrical properties. electromagnetic waves are produced when electric charges change their motion. Whether the frequency is high or low, all electromagnetic waves travel at 300,000,000 meters per second.
a wave that is made up of alternating electric and magnetic fields created by vibrating electric charges
A wave of electric and magnetic energy that is generated when an electric charge is accelerated.
A structure consisting of electric and magnetic fields in which each kind of field generates the other to keep the structure propagating through empty space at the speed of light, c. Electromagnetic waves include radio and TV signals, infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet light, x rays, and gamma waves.
Wave consisting of oscillating electric and magnetic fields that move through space at the speed of light.
A transverse wave which has both electrical and magnetic properties. Light, ultraviolet, infrared, radio, x-rays, gamma waves and microwaves are all transverse waves.
an electric field spreading in wavelike-fashion through space at a speed of about 300 000 km.sec, with its direction and intensity at any point in space oscillating rapidly back and forth. James Clerk's Maxwell's theory in 1864 suggested that light was such a wave, and today we know that such waves include all forms of light--also infra-red and ultra-violet, as well as radio waves, microwaves, x-rays and gamma rays.
An oscillation of the electric or magnetic field associated with the propagation of electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic waves are characterized by their wavelength or wavenumber, amplitude, and polarization characteristics. They propagate at the speed of light.
an oscillation of the electric or magnetic field associated with the propagation of energy; characterized by their wavelengths and amplitude; propagate at the speed of light.
Wave taht consists of both electric and magnetic variation.
