Electromagnetic Waves

By Grant Collier

Which kind of disturbance creates an EM waves?

EM waves are produced by vibration that have an electric charge. These vibrations and the waves they create both have electric and magnetic components to it. Without these vibrations, EM waves could not exist.

Comparing EM and mechanical waves.

EM waves and mechanical waves are very different. First of all, mechanical waves need a medium to exist and EM waves don't need a medium. Second, EM waves have a much higher range of frequency than mechanical waves.

Different Ranges of the EM spectrum with each kind of radiation

Gamma Ray

Gamma waves are given off by stars which allow us to see stars from far away. Gamma rays can kill cells, so gamma waves are used to kill cancer cells.
