No, x-rays travel at the same observable speed as any other electromagnetic wave including light.

Visible light and x-rays are both forms of electromagnetic radiation, and do not require a medium to travel through.


No, x-rays are not visible light.


Visible light is made of rays. There are rays with wavelengths that are shorter than visible light and other with longer wavelength.


Visible light, ultraviolet rays, and X-rays are all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, and travel at the same speed. Humans can see visible light, but not ultraviolet rays or X-rays. Ultraviolet rays have shorter wavelengths, higher frequencies, and higher energy than visible light. X-rays have shorter wavelengths, higher frequencies, and higher energy than ultraviolet rays. This means that ultra violet and x-rays can do far more damage to our flesh than light can.


No, they travel at the same speed of light that is 299,792 kmsec-1(in vacuum).


visible light is the only VISIBLE light.


The sun's rays travel through space as ultraviolet rays, visible light etc.


No. All forms of electromagnetic radiation travel at the speed of light.


Gamma have higher frequency. But travel in same speed


Visible light and X-rays are the same physical phenomenon, and travel with the same speed. They differ in . . . -- frequency (X-rays are higher) -- wavelength (visible are longer) -- energy per photon (X-rays are higher) -- damage to living tissue (X-rays cause more)


No. Both travel at exactly the same speed. The speed of light.


Light is a term we give to electromagnetic radiation in the visible spectrum. All electromagnetic rays travel at the speed of light.


Between visible light and X-rays there is ultraviolet light.


because they all travel at the same speed (speed of light)


No. Not just light waves but all forms of Electro Magnetic Radiation (EMR) are able to travel through vacuums. e.g gamma rays, radio waves, x-rays, etc.


no , X-rays have a longer wave length than visible light Yes, X-rays do have a shorter wave length than visible light.


X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation just like visible light. They travel at the same speed (299,792 km/s in a vacuum) as visible light. The only difference is that x-rays have a much higher frequency (~10^18 Hz) and hence a much shorter wavelength (~1 nm) than visible light.


No. Both X-rays and microwaves are forms of light, and light always travels at the same speed.


EM rays which are in the range of visible light.


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


Gamma rays, x-rays, and ultraviolet rays have wavelengths shorter than visible light.


Colour only applies to visible light. UV rays are not visible.
