What is the frequency of ultraviolet rays?
Ultraviolet rays have a wavelength of about 10-8 meters, X rays wavelength is about 10-10m and gamma rays 10-12m Frequency = speed of light in vacuum / wavelength The frequency is inversely proportional to the wave length hence a shorter wavelength will result in a higher frequency. X and gamma rays have a shorter wavelength than ultruviolets thus x and gamma rays have higher frequencies.
They are both electromagnetic energy, so it that light (he, he) they are the same. But the gamma rays are of much higher frequency, and that means shorter wavelength and higher energy. As we move up the electromagnetic spectrum from light, we go to ultraviolet (UV) light, X-rays and then gamma rays.
Ultraviolet light, visible light, X-rays, microwaves, radio waves, infrared waves, and gamma rays are all on the spectrum of light, are all electromagnetic waves (EM waves). Any EM wave can be considered light. EM waves are composed of photons, which has properties of both a particle and a wave. The difference between different waves on the EM wave/light spectrum is their frequency. For example, radio waves have a very low frequency, microwaves have a slightly…
As you go farther right down the spectrum (radio waves, microwaves, infrared waves, visible light, ultraviolet light, x-rays, and gamma rays), the waves' wavelengths decrease as their frequencies decrease. For example, x-rays have a shorter wavelength and higher frequency than ultraviolet light. Radio waves on the left end have the longest wavelength and shortest frequency, while gamma rays on the right end have the shortest wavelength and highest frequency.
Electromagnetic radiation is characterised by its frequency. Frequency is measured in Hertz, abbreviated Hz. To a radio man 'high frequency' is in the range 2MHz to 30 MHz. Other e-m radiation is listed below, lowest frequency first VHF UHF Microwaves Millimeter waves Infrared Visible Light Ultraviolet Soft X-rays Hard X-rays Gamma rays.
Do the microwaves and ultraviolet light have different wavelengths but travel through space at the same speed?
Electromagnetic spectrum consist of the following radiation of a given wavelength the human eye is able to see only the wavelength within the range of 400nanometers to 700nanometer's human eye is blind to the rest of the wavelength. the following wavelength are invisible ,we divide them in to the groups 1. ultra violet rays 2. gamma rays 3. infrared rays 4. X-rays Further they are divided into the sub groups as follow, γ = Gamma…
