  • the Electromagnetic spectrum
    • Electromagnetic waves can travel without any particles to vibrate this means they can can move easily through such
    • All electromagnetic waves travel at 300 000 kilometer per second in a vacuum - this is the fastest speed anything can move.

    • The color of visible light depends on its wavelength. if the wavelength of a light wave is longer than that of red light human eyes cannot see it infrared microwave and radio waves have longer wavelength than red light.
    • Electromagnetic waves with shorter wavelength have higher frequencies ultraviolet radiation has a higher frequency than visible light even shorter wavelength are presented in x ray and then gamma rays
    • 1) gamma rays 2) x-rays 3) ultraviolet rays 4) visible light 5) infrared 6) microwave 7) radio wave
    • The full range of electromagnetic waves is called the electromagnetic spectrum
  • Electromagnetic waves can travel without any particles to vibrate this means they can can move easily through such
