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

exists and is an alternate of .

An advantage is that it allows you to see because the light reflects off an object and into your eyes. Visible light waves is the only electromagnetic wave you can see. It allows you to see colors.

A disadvantage is the amount of light pollution. Can hurt your eyes if u stare at it.

How are visible light waves made?

Visible light waves are made when a photon is emitted from a source and has a frequency, or the correct am mount of energy, to create visible light at a specific color.

Are visible light waves dangerous?

  They can be to your eyes: too much light and you go blind. We use visible light daily to see so any frequency in the visible range is not harmful in/and of itself; but a

Advantages and disadvantages of radio waves?

The advantages are it travels long and far good for long distance the disadvantages are that it takes a while to transfer back ----------------------------------------------

What type of wave is is visible light?

An electromagnetic wave. The electrical field and magnetic field are transverse waves perpendicular to each other (and also to the direction of propagation).

What are the uses for visible light waves?

Here are a few. Try and see if you can think of some others. -- useful when driving -- helps avoid stepping in stuff -- indispensable for reading/writing -- facilitat

How do you see visible light waves?

Visible light waves are the only radiation on the EM spectrum which you can see. these colors range from the lowest frequency/highest wavelength (red) to highest frequency/low

Why can you see visible light waves but not other electromagnetic waves?

Visible light consists of the band of wavelengths to which the structure of the human eye is sensitive. Radiation outside of that band may enter the eye, but there's nothing

What are the advantages and disadvantages of wave power?

1. Renewable: The best thing about wave energy  is that it will never run out. There will always be waves crashing  upon the shores of nations, near the populated coastal re

Can you see visible light waves?

Well, there are different types of light waves, meaning they have different wavelengths, either allowing us to see them or not. All colors have different wavelengths from one
