A wave is a disturbance that propagates through space, often transferring energy. While a mechanical wave exists in a medium (which on deformation is capable of producing elastic restoring forces), waves of electromagnetic radiation (and probably gravitational radiation) can travel through vacuum, that is, without a medium. Waves travel and transfer energy from one point to another, with little or no permanent displacement of the particles of the medium (there is little or no associated mass transport); instead there are oscillations around fixed positions.
For many years, scientists have been trying to work out the problem of energy transfer from one place to another specially sound and light energy, through studying waves and their properties , they have been able to transfer sound and light energy “actually voices and images” from one place to another.
