GREAT Visual of the Electromagnetic Spectrum. While light and other electromagnetic waves do not require a medium and can travel through a vacuum, they can travel through some media, such as clear glass.
Wavelength: lambda: the distance between any point on a wave and the corresponding point on the next crest (trough) of the wave; distance the wave travels during one cycle; expressed in meters, nanometers, micrometers, picometers m) or angstroms
Radio spectrum refers to the part of the electromagnetic spectrum corresponding to radio frequencies – that is, frequencies lower than around 300 GHz (or, equivalently, wavelengths longer than about 1 mm).
