• Created on: 02-05-14 18:57
What are the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum?
1 of 8
How can we calculate the frequency of the electromagnetic waves?
frequency = wave speed - wavelength
2 of 8
How can we calculate the speed of the electromagnetic waves?
speed = frequency x wavelength
3 of 8
How can we calculate the wavelength of the electromagnetic waves?
wavelength = frequency - speed
4 of 8
How does the size of the wavelength of the wave affect the frequency?
The shorter the wavelength of the waves, the higher their frequency is.
5 of 8
How does the frequency of a wave affect the energy of the waves?
The energy of the waves increases as the frequency increases.
6 of 8
What speed do all electromagnetic waves travel through a vacuum at?
300 million m/s
7 of 8
What are electromagnetic waves?
Electric and magnetic disturbances that transfers energy from one place to another.
