This site gives an in depth analysis of what electromagnetic waves are. Including some helpful multimedia diagrams.
Description of electromagnetic waves, which move energy through empty space (a vacuum), stored as part of an electric and magnetic field.
From Eric Weisstein's World of Physics, this page is the index for all sections related to electromagnetic waves. A useful site for quick brief information
Animated diagrams of two superposing transverse waves and their resultant. Wavelength, phase and amplitude are adjustable. Uses the word "interference" instead of "superposition".
Short article about gravitational waves and how they might be detected, including by the LISA mission.
The basics of gravitational waves explained in simple terms.
Simple details on transverse and longitudinal waves including diagrams.
A collection of physics lessons about light waves and colour
A great explainer about gravitational waves, how they are formed and how we are trying to detect them.
Short article on the hunt for gravitational waves - distortions or the warping of the very fabric of space-time, which Einstein described as different aspects of reality itself.
