What would you like to do?

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
Thanks for the feedback!

What is the electromagnetic spectrum?

The electromagnetic (EM) spectrum is the entire range offrequencies that electromagnetic radiation can have. The EMspectrum is divided into sections based on the commoncharact

What is a Electromagnetic spectrum?

The combination of different colours due to the dispersion of sun light is called spectrum. This type of spectrum is called continues or line spectrum.

What is in the electromagnetic spectrum?

You actually know more about it than you may think! The electromagnetic (EM) spectrum is just a name that scientists give a bunch of types of radiation when they want to talk

What is the electromagnet spectrum?

The electromagnet spectrum is the entire range of electromagnet energy, from radiation that has the shortest wavelenghts to radiation that has the longest wavelengths.

What are the dangers of the different frequency bands within the electromagnetic spectrum?

There are a number of ways. A microwave oven operates at 2.45GHz as the resulting wavelength is comparable to the size of a water molecule. Therefore, it is able to rapidly r

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

How does cosmic rays differ from others on the electromagnetic spectrum?

The term cosmic ray is a bit of a misnomer since they are actually high energy particles, rather than electromagnetic radiation which could be placed on the spectrum. The name

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
