Do invisible flames give off light?

Invisible means there is no visible light. They may give off other electromagnetic radiation, but "light" usually refers to visible light.

Does light from the sun give off more visible light or more invisible light?

The Sun gives off more invisible light because the Sun gives off all the light in the Electromagnetic Spectrum. Radiowaves, Microwaves, UV rays, Visible light, X-Rays and Gamma Rays. I might have missed some but I think I got all of them. The only kind of light we can see is Visible light. Therefore, the Sun gives off more invisible light then visible light.

What give us light?

Light is given by a subatomic particle called a photon. All types of light are transferred by this from gamma rays to microwaves. Although It is called a particle from the double slit experiment we can see that the photon can act like particle and a wave

Does the convection part of microwave-convection oven combo give off microwaves?


Are microwave ovens the same as microwaves?

A microwave is a form of electromagnetic radiation in the frequency range between 300 MHz (or 0.3 GHz) and 300 GHz. A microwave is also the "shorthand" name we give to a common appliance called a microwave oven. Are they the same?Whether or not microwave ovens are the same as microwaves depends on the application of the term. Microwave ovens are called that because they contain a microwave generating device and direct the radiated electromagnetic energy (the microwaves themselves) into a cooking space (called a cavity) to heat drinks or food, or even to cook things.Say an appliance salesman is saying to his/her junior helpers, "Arrange the microwaves on the shelves." This refers to the microwave ovens. It's not about electromagnetic energy called microwaves.Take the case of an electronics teacher saying to his/her students, "The microwaves are reflected off the metal screen that is used in the construction of the dish." This does notrefer to microwave ovens, but the electromagnetic energy itself.
