Asked in Electromagnetic Radiation
Is all radiation harmful What if any are some good forms of radiation?
-- Radiation at frequencies below 1.7 MHz is good because it helps us hear the news on AM radio. -- Radiation at frequencies between 88 and 108 MHz helps us hear music on FM radio. -- Radiation at frequencies around 1 GHz helps us make cell phone calls. -- Radiation at frequencies around 2.45 GHz helps us heat meatloaf and make popcorn, and it can't hurt us if we're careful with it. -- Radiation with wavelengths between 400 and 800 nanometers is good because it helps us see things so that we don't go around bumping into them. -- Radiation with wavelengths between 300 and 400 nanometers can give our skin a nice healthy glow, and it can't hurt us if we're careful with it. -- Radiation with wavelengths between 100 and 300 nanometers can help the doctor check our bones, and it can't hurt us if we're careful with it. -- Radiation with wavelengths less than maybe 350 nanometers can hurt us if we're not careful with it.
Asked in Nuclear Physics
What is the nuclear radiation that is emitted from natural sources all around us called?
What does the far end of infared radiation do for us?
Asked in Ozone Layer
What layer protects us from what kind of radiation?
Asked in Health, Child Health
Is non- radiation better or worse for human health?
Radiation is all around us and comes from the sun. Humans have found ways to make some of this radiation. Radiation has been used successfully to treat cancers and is also used in manufacturing, agriculture and in scientific research. Too much radiation is harmful and can also cause some cancers. Overall, radiation produces more benefit than hazard when used properly.
Asked in Chemistry
What is the natural way to detect radioactive radiation?
Asked in Radioactive Decay
Where do nuclear decay occur naturally?
What were the effects of the atomic bomb on the people living in Hiroshima?
The people that did not get affected by the large explosion were affected by the high radiation. The radiation dug into their skin (the heat they felt) and caused cancer later in life if they survived. The radiation killed all the animals all around and poisoned the plants all around which died instantly along with anything in a one hundred feet zone. Anyone around there a few days after the explosion would also become victims of the radiation which lingers in the air.
Asked in Science
How can you see different coloured objects?
All substances and objects we see in color is due to the fact that they absorb all the colored radiation from the light source and reflects a particular radiation. For example, a Red colored objects absorbs all the radiation from white light and reflects only red color radiation that's why it seems red to us.
