Electromagnetic spectrum similarities and differences?

already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

all travel at the same speed, speed of light in a vacuum, 2.998x10^8 m/s
they all have magnetic and electrical fiels perpendicular to one another along the propagation of the wave
they all are transverse and so can be polarised
they are all progressive waves and so can transfer energy
they can all be reflected, refracted and diffracted
and finally they all obey velocity=wavelength x frequency
hope that helped

What is the difference between a telescope and electromagnetic spectrum?

A telescope helps you to see objects in the distance better. The electromagnetic spectrum is a collection of all waves. Light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum albeit a

What are the different energies represented in the electromagnetic spectrum?

In order from longest wavelength and lowest frequency to shortest wavelength and highest frequency, they are radio waves, microwaves, infrared rays, visible light, UV (ultravi

What is the difference between electromagnetic spectrum and continous spectrum?

From most purposes the electromagnetic spectrum is considered to be continuous. However it could be contended that all frequencies of 'light' are quantized into discrete value

What is the electromagnetic spectrum and what are the 7 different types?

The Electromagnetic Spectrum: All Sorts of Light!There are many different types of energy that come from the Sun. All of the types of energy travel in waves with different wav

What is the difference between electromagnetic energy and electromagnetic spectrum?

Strange question, they're not really things you can compare directly, it's like comparing an apple with the Star Wars trilogy. The spectrum is the range of different possible

What are the different uses of waves in the electromagnetic spectrum?

Gamma Rays are very deadly and their uses are limited. They are  used for gamma spectroscopy.    X-rays are used for detection of composition of various substances  a
