### Which waves have lower frequency radar waves or visible waves?

Radar waves have a lower frequency that light waves.The frequency of a light wave is related to wavelength and speed by the equation c = &raquo;&frac12;. The color of a light wave is also determined by the frequency. The amplitude and brightness are not related to the frequency.

### What can be determined from the frequency and wavelength in a wave?

the velocity of the wave -apex

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

No, velocity and color are independent. Color is determined by frequency, and speed is determined by what material the light is traveling through.

### Which of the following can be determined from the frequency of a light wave?

If you know the frequency of a light wave, you can tell the wavelength, thecolor it'll appear to your eye, and the energy in each photon of the light.The energy of the wave ~APEX

### What is an example of frequency?

Frequency can be found in sound, light, and line current. An example of frequency is, the frequency wave of light will determine what color the light is.

### The color of the light is determined by its?

Wavelength, or alternatively its frequency.

### Do light waves travel in straight paths called rays?

google it lazy bum. No, light waves are just that-- waves. The color of the wave is determined by it's frequency- normal light is white because it is low frequency. The frequency is how fast the light "waves". But a laser pointer has red light, which has a higher frequency, and therefore is only one color. Hope this helps!

### What is the difference between unltraviolet light and infrared light?

wavelength and frequency. ultravoilet light has a short wave length and therefore a high frequency, while infrared light has a longer wave length and lower frequency

### What is the relationship between the frequency and wave medium?

There's no relationship between the frequency and the medium. The frequency of a wave is determined by the source. Once the wave leaves the source and sets out on its journey, the frequency doesn't change, regardless of what kind of stuff the wave encounters and has to travel through.

### What determine the color of a light wave?

Its wavelength (or frequency).
