We all know that a wave is a disturbance that spreads through space and time, usually by a transfer of energy. BUT what makes water waves and light waves different? Water waves are mechanical waves meaning that the traveling energy is moving through a medium, that medium being water. However, a light wave can travel through a vacuum, that is, without a medium at all.
To learn more about water waves and their creation, come watch Ultimate Wave Tahiti now showing in our Dr. Phillips CineDome!!
