Top best answers to the question «What wave is light wave»

Light waves are just one type of electromagnetic wave. Other electromagnetic waves include the microwaves in your oven, radio waves, and X-rays. Light waves are regarded as a varying electric field (E) coupled with a varying magnetic field (B), at right angles to each other and to the direction of travel.

Light waves move as transverse waves (see diagram of a transverse wave) and can move through a vacuum (empty space) at a speed of approximately 186,000 miles per second. Light has both magnetic and electric fields. Scientists call this electromagnetic radiation (light).
