### Do all colors of light have the same energy?

Actually no. Energy equals Planck's constant times frequency.

### What color of light travels with greatest velocity?

All colors of light travel with the same speed.

### Do infrared waves travel more quickly visible light?

No. All colors of light, and all other forms of electromagnetic radiation, all travel with the same speed.

### Does red light travel faster than blue light?

No. All colors travel at the same speed. It is called "the speed of light".

### How many colors are there in black?

There are no colors in black ! Colors are governed by the frequency (temperature) with which light is reflected from an object. White has the highest reflection frequency where as black does not reflect at all

### Do gamma rays travel the speed of light?

Gamma rays travel exactly the speed of light because gamma rays are light

### Is the speed of EM waves as they travel through vacuum directly proportional to the frequency.?

No. The speed is THE SAME for all frequencies of electromagnetic waves.

### What do all types of electromagnetic spectrum have in common?

They are all transverse waves and travel at the same speed in a vacuum.

### What is the speed of a photon of red light if its frequency is 4.3 x 1014 Hz?

All photons have the same speed in a vacuum, no matter what their frequency. They all travel at the speed of light: 299,792,458 meters per second.

### Is speed related to the color of a light wave?

No. All colors of light travel at the same speed in vacuum. Different colors represent light waves with different wavelengths (frequencies).

### Is electromagnetic spectrum and frequency spectrum same?

Electromagnetic waves have an associated frequency and wavelength. They are related by c = &lambda;&nu;, where c is the speed of light, &lambda; is the wavelength, and &nu; is the frequency. All electromagnetic waves travel at the speed of light. A change in frequency results in a change in wavelength (as required by the given equation). In short, yes. They're the same.

### Does the color of a laser affect the velocity of a light wave projected by the laser?

Colors are determined by the wavelengths but all wavelengths travel at the same speed. So no, colors do not affect the velocity of light.
