    Micro waves and radio waves are electromagnetic waves while ocean wave and seismic wave are mechanical waves.

    Explanation:

    Electromagnetic waves do not require a medium for propagation. They can travel along vacuum just like they travel through matter.

    Further examples of electromagnetic waves are x rays, infrared waves etc.

    Spectrum of electromagnetic waves in the increasing order of frequency is radio waves, microwaves, infrared waves, visible light, ultraviolet, x ray, gamma ray.

    Mechanical waves require a medium for propagation. Thus they cannot travel through a vacuum.

    Sound wave is an example of mechanical wave.
