Electromagnetic radiation synonyms
Energy in the form of transverse magnetic and electric waves. In a vacuum, these waves travel at the speed of light (which is itself a form of electromagnetic radiation). The acceleration of electric charges (such as alternating current in a radio transmitter) gives rise to electromagnetic radiation. Other common examples of electromagnetic radiation are x-rays, microwaves, and radio waves. A single unit, or quantum, of electromagnetic radiation is called a photon .
A wave of energy consisting of electric and magnetic fields, oscillating at right angles to each other.
radiation consisting of waves of energy associated with electric and magnetic fields resulting from the acceleration of an electric charge
