How are gamma rays different from infrared radiation?
Infrared radiation has long wavelength and gamma rays has shortest wavelength. The energy carried by a Infrared radiation is low, while the energy carried by a gamma ray is high. And also gamma ray has higher frequency and infrared radiation has low frequency. Unlike Infrared radiation, gamma rays cannot be captured and reflected by mirrors. ...
Does visible light have a higher frequency than infrared?
That is correct, visible light has a higher frequency than infrared radiation has. ...
Asked in Physics, Visible Light Spectrum
Compare the frequency and energy of infrared rays to the frequency and energy of visible light?
Both are less for infrared radiation than for visible light.
Asked in Physics, Visible Light Spectrum
Does infrared radiation have a higher frequency than visible light?
No, infrared radiation (IR) does not have a higher frequency than visible light. Visible light is above IR on the electromagnetic spectrum. It (visible light) has higher frequency and shorter wavelengths than IR radiation does. ...
What Electromagnetic Radiation has lower frequency than the red of visible light?
The closest is infrared radiation.
Asked in Physics
What has a longer wave length a infrared radiation or red light?
Infrared radiation has a lower frequency and longer wavelength than red light. Note that "infra" means "below" in this case referring to the lower frequency. ...

What has more energy infrared radiation radio waves ultraviolet radiation or X-ray radiation?
Here is the list of these types of electromagnetic (EM) radiation from the highest frequency on down: X-rays, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, infrared (IR) radiation and radio waves. This list is also one that starts at the highest frequency and goes down. The highest frequency forms of electromagnetic energy have the highest energies. High frequency = high energy. ...
Asked in Physics, Electromagnetic Radiation
What has the longest wave length ultraviolet radiation gamma radiation visible radiation or infrared radiation?
Of infrared, visible, gamma and ultraviolet radiation the one with the longest wavelength (and lowest frequency) is infrared radiation. To be more specific going from long wavelength to small wavelengths one has: Infrared - Visible - Ultraviolet - Gamma There are more types of electromagnetic radiation by the way, such as radio- or X-rays. ...

What electomagnetic radiation is greater infrared radiation or ultraviolet radiation?
Infrared radiation has a lower frequency than optical light as it is below the red end of the spectrum. "Infra" means below, making "infrared" meaning "below red. On the other hand, ultraviolet radiation has a higher frequency than optical light as it is above the violet end of the spectrum. "Ultra" means "above or greater", making ultraviolet meaning "above violet". The answer to your question would be: ultraviolet radiation has more electromagnetic energy than infrared radiation. ...
Asked in Microwave Ovens
Is it true or false that microwave ovens use a type of infrared wave?
Microwave ovens employ microwave radiation, which is lower in frequency than infrared radiation, to generate the heat in the food they cook. They don't use infrared radiation per se. ...
Asked in Circuits
What is the frequency of infrared radiation for the mobile infrared portI am designing a IR jammer and require the frequency so you can test your circuit?
since infrared (IR) is just below the visible spectrum of light in frequency and is radiated strongly by hot bodies......i think so ...
Asked in Units of Measure
What is the frequency of infrared rays?
Infrared (IR) radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of microwaves. Infrared radiation has wavelengths between about 750 nm and 1 mm. To convert wavelength to frequency, divide the speed of light by the wavelength. Speed of light is 300000000 m/s so 1mm corresponds to a frequency of 3E11 or 300GHz 750nm corresponds to a frequency of 4E14 or 400THz if I didn't drop a decimal point somewhere. ...
Asked in Biology
Why is the energy of infrared waves greater than radio waves?
The energy of a photon of electromagnetic radiation, such as radio or infrared radiation is related to the frequency of the photon by E=hf, where E is the energy of the photon, h is the Planck constant, and f is the frequency of the photon. Since infra-red radiation has a higher frequency than radio waves, then a photon of infra-red radiation will have a higher energy. ...
