Light waves are considered transverse waves due to which of the following properties?
Light waves consist of oscillating electric and magnetic fields which are perpendicular to the direction of motion of the wave.
Light waves can travel through empty space; they do not require a medium.
Light waves consist of oscillating electric and magnetic fields, and the electric field is always perpendicular to the magnetic field.
The oscillations that make up a light wave follow a regular pattern, which can be expressed as a sinusoidal wave.
