I am new to here.
I am not familiar with physics well, but since this question in my opinion does not seem to belong to ELL, kindly pardon me to ask here.
When given such a sentence below,
radio waves can be picked up by radios that are surrounded by walls.
Would that mean, radio waves can be "picked up" aka "heard" if, only if, the wave reflects or refracts on the surrounding materials such as "walls"?
I have almost no knowledge of physics, so kindly pardon me and I appreciate any kind of support. Thank you in advance.
