INTRODUCTION – Notes on Wave Theory for IIT Mains

(Sample Text)

There are two modes of energy transfer –

  • Particle motion – When particle is transferred from one part of space to the other it carriers energy with it.
  • Wave motion – When no particle is transferred one part of space to the other although energy is transported.

2. CLASSIFICATION OF WAVES (Notes on Wave Theory for IIT Mains)
Waves may be of following two types :
2.1 Electro-magnetic waves (E.M. waves) (Medium is not necessary for propagation)

  • Periodic changes takes place in electric & magnetic field hence, it is called electromagnetic wave
  • In medium, E.M. waves travel with light velocity
  • E.M. waves can be polarised
  • E.M. waves are transverse in nature
  • Medium is not required for propagation of E.M. waves
  • E.M. waves has momentum

Eg. Radio waves, light waves, thermal radiation
