Do gamma rays travel faster than visible light?

No. Their speed is the same.


What travels faster through space visible light or ultraviolet rays?

neither, both travel at the same speed: c


Do visible light and x-rays travel through different medians?

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


Compare and contrast the properties of visible light ultraviolet light and x-rays?

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.


Are X-rays visible light?

No, x-rays are not visible light.


Is visible light longer or shorter then rays?

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


Do gamma rays travel faster than light?

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


Can X-rays travel faster then yellow light in a vacuum?

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


X-rays travel in vacuum at a higher speed than the visible light?

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


How does the energy from the sun reaches the earth?

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


How does the speed of visible light compare with the speed of gamma ray?

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


Do visible light rays need a medium in which to travel?

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.


Which type of rays are visible?

visible light is the only VISIBLE light.


Why do gamma rays not move faster than light rays due to their shorter wavelength?

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


Do X-rays travel faster than microwaves?

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


How does speed of visible light compare with the speed of gamma rays when both speeds are measured in a vacuum?

Visible light and gamma rays are different parts of the full spectrum of light. Since they are really both just light, they travel at the same speed, the speed of light. 186,000 miles per second.


Does Gamma rays travel faster than visible light.?

Gamma have higher frequency. But travel in same speed


What is the speed of x-rays?

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.


Do x rays have shorter wavelength then visible light?

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


What are waves that can travel through vacuum?

Electromagnetic waves travel through a vacuum at the speed of light, c, which is 3.00 x 108 m/s to three significant figures. A few examples include visible light rays, x-rays, and gamma rays.


Do gama rays travel faster than the speed of light?

Gamma rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just as light is, and all EM waves propagate at the speed of light through a vacuum.


Which types of radiation have wavelengths shorter than visible light?

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


What has wavelengths that are shorter than visible light?

We know that ultraviolet light, X-rays and gamma rays have wavelengths shorter than visible light.


What has a longer wavelength visible light or x rays?

Visible light. The order in the light spectrum is Gamma Rays, X-rays, Ultra-Violet, Visible, Infrared, Microwaves, and Radio waves. As you move down the light spectrum the wave lengths increase.


Do gamma rays travel at the speed of light?

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