Electromagnetic Waves Electricity can be static, like what makes the water to bend when you charged the

comb with static electricity. Magnetism can also be static like a refrigerator magnet. But when they change or move together, they make electromagnetic waves. Electromagnetic waves are transmission of energy through a vacuum or using no medium caused by the osscilation of electric and magnetic fields. They move at a constant speed of 3x108 m/s. Often, they are called electromagnetic radiation, light, or photons. James Clerk Maxwell and Heinrich Hertz are the two scientist who studied how electromagnetic waves are formed and how fast they travel.

Wavelength - The distance between one peak or crest of a wave of light, heat, or other energy and the next corresponding peak or crest. Crest - The highest point of the wave. Trough - The lowest point of the wave. Amplitude - The height of the wave as measured between the trough and the crest. Period - The time it takes for a wavelength to pass a stationary point. Frequency - The number of wavelengths that pass a point in a set period of time. Electromagnetic Spectrum
