[Electromagnetic Waves]

Invisible waves consisting of an oscillating electric and magnetic field.
These two fields interact with each other, with changes in the electric field creating a new magnetic field, and changes in the magnetic field creating a new electric field.
Electromagnetic waves are generated when an electric field and a magnetic field interact with each other.
Electromagnetic waves are periodic, and the number of oscillations per second is called frequency, which is measured in hertz (Hz).
High frequency waves have short periods and are strongly rectilinear. The properties of an electromagnetic wave depend on its frequency.
The following are types of electromagnetic waves in descending order of frequency: gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet light, visible light, infrared light, microwaves, and radio waves.
