How much energy does a radio wave have?

Answer On One Hand: Very Little EnergyThe energy of a radio wave ranges from about 0.4 nano-electron volts to 0.1 milli-electron volts per photon associated with the wave. This can be determined from the... Read More »

Top Q&A For: How much energy does a radio wave have

What size wave is needed to produce ocean wave energy?

Ocean wave energy is a source of renewable energy using the waves of the ocean to generate electricity. Any size wave can produce wave energy, but it is the tall waves with lower frequencies that p... Read More »

Are wave energy and wave power the same thing?

Although the terms are often used interchangeably, wave energy and wave power are not necessarily the same. Waves contain energy produced by wind blowing over the surface of the ocean, but it is on... Read More »

Where does tidal wave energy come from?

Tidal waves are most often caused by underwater geological events, such as earthquakes or volcanic eruptions. Less commonly, tidal waves can be caused by meteor impacts. Unlike other waves, tidal... Read More »

As energy is added to a wave, how does its amplitude and intensity increase?

A wave's intensity is proportional to the square of the amplitude. Thus, as energy is added to a wave, the amplitude will increase at a much higher rate compared to the intensity.References:Cornell... Read More »
