Dear student,

The nature of the two waves are different. As we already know that light DOES NOT need a material medium to travel. These are just oscillating electric and magnetic fields. For example, when we have a charged particle, the electric field due to it extends to infinite distance from it. It does not need a medium to travel. It just propagates by itself.
