Which of these waves can be Polarized ?
Light waves are very similar to sound waves but can move much faster. Light waves are electromagnetic waves. Light waves are we can see in the visible light spectrum with colors. Infrared and ultraviolet are also electromagnetic waves, but our eyes cannot see them.
The wavelength of the light that most people can see ranges from 400 to 700 billionths of a meter. A light wave consists of energy in the form of electric and magnetic fields. vibrate at right angles to the direction of movement of the wave, and at right angles to each other.
