Sound, light and waves


The idea of waves is useful because it is the key to explaininghow energy can be transferred from one object to another object by radiation, even when the objects are not touching. Waves carry information that can be detected by humans or manufactured detectors. Understanding waves helps us to communicate, explore the universe, and transfer energy to where we want it.
