Part A We divide the electromagnetic spectrum into six major categories of light, listed below. Rank these forms of light from left to right in order of increasing wavelength. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them. Hint 1. The wavelength of radio waves Any light wave with a wavelength longer than 1 is considered a radio wave. This fact should help you place radio waves correctly in Part A. ANSWER: = 1.0×10 −27 Correct Notice that these wavelengths span an enormous range. The wavelengths of gamma rays can be smaller than the size of an atomic nucleus, while the wavelengths of radio waves can be many meters (or even kilometers) long. Visible light spans only a very narrow range of wavelengths, from about 400 at the blue (violet) end to about 700 at the red end. Part B Rank the forms of light from left to right in order of increasing frequency . To rank items as equivalent, overlap them. Hint 1. What is the mathematical relationship between frequency and wavelength? The mathematical relationship between wavelength and frequency for any light wave is visible light Web-Fonts not available -- using image fonts instead Page 4 of 17 Chapter 05 10/4/2018
