# Why do gamma rays not move faster than light rays due to their shorter wavelength?

###### Wiki User

because they all travel at the same speed (speed of light)

The wavelength of gamma rays is much shorter than visible wavelengths.

No, gamma radiation is of much shorter wavelength than red light.

Shorter or longer than what ? The wavelength of visible light is shorter than that of radio and heat, and longer than the wavelength of X-ray and gamma radiation. And the wavelength of green light is shorter than red light but longer than blue light.

Gamma rays have more energy than visible light rays. Visible light has a longer wavelength. Gamma rays have a shorter wavelength and higher frequency, and have the most energy of all electromagnetic radiation.

No. X-rays and gamma rays are still shorter.

Gamma rays are of higher energy and much much shorter wavelength than visible light.

No--ultraviolet, x-rays, and gamma rays are progressively shorter.

There are a few categories of electromagnetic with a shorter wavelength (higher frequency) than visible light. These include ultra-violet light, X-rays, and gamma rays.

The wavelength is longer. When light encounters denser matter, the wavelength is shorter and the speed is shorter.

Waves the have a wavelength slightly shorter than the visible light are as follows: 1. Ultraviolet 2. X-rays 3. Gamma rays

Gamma rays and visible light are both forms of electromagnetic radiation, but the wavelength of gamma rays is much much much shorter than visible light waves.

The wavelength of green light is shorter than that of yellow light.

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.

Yes. Gamma rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation just like light, though with a much higher frequency (shorter wavelength).

Actually, blue light does have a shorter wavelength than red light. If red light had the shorter wavelength, then the sky might appear red instead of blue.

Gamma radiation has the smallest wavelength.

The shorter the wavelength of visible light, the higher the frequency and the greater the energy of the photons.

Ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma rays have higher frequency/shorter wavelength than visible light has.

The faster the frequency, the shorter is the wavelength; the slower the frequency, the longer the wavelength. Let frequency be f wavelength=d and speed of light =c f=c/d
