    The electromagnetic spectrum is made up of six different types of waves. Radio waves, Microwaves, Infrared waves, Visible light, Ultraviolet light, X-rays and Gamma rays. The radio waves are used to transmit radio and television signals. The infrared waves are used to tell temperature of areas. Visible light is all the colors that we can see. Ultraviolet light can help things grow but to much can cause diseases such as skin cancer. X-rays are used as a tool to find broken bones or take pitchers of

    The Electromagnetic Spectrum [IMAGE] The electromagnetic spectrum is the entire range of radiant energies or wave frequencies. There are seven main regions in the electromagnetic spectrum. These are: radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, x-rays and gamma rays. Each section of the EM spectrum has a different wavelength, these are shown in the table below Section of EM spectrum Wavelength (in cm) radio waves > 10 microwaves 10 à 10 infrared

    PART 1 The Electromagnetic Spectrum is the range of frequencies of possible electromagnetic radiation. The Spectrum ranges from 0 Hertz up to 2.4x1023 Hertz. The exact wavelength limits of the Spectrum are unknown however it is widely believed that the short wavelength limit is equal to the Planck Length (1.616x10-35m) and the long wavelength limit is the length of the Universe. Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is an occurrence that takes the form of self-propagating waves produced by the motion

    The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of all electromagnetic radiation. The electromagnetic radiation can be radio waves that we use to listen to music, visible light that we use to see or microwaves that we use to cook food with. We deal with all of these types of radiations in our daily lives. RADIO WAVES: Radio waves are used exactly for what it says — radio. They are also the waves responsible for the signals cell phones and televisions receive. Objects in space, such as planets and comets

    The Electromagnetic Spectrum The electromagnetic spectrum is the collective name for all types of radiation. Radiation is energy that travels around in waves. The electromagnetic spectrum goes from the waves with the lowest energy to those with the highest energy. Radio Waves [IMAGE] Radio waves have the longest wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. They can be from as long as a football to as long as a football pitches. Radio waves carry signals from devices from one place

    The Light and Electromagnetic Spectrum both fall in the same category. in order to see the light or notice anything about the electromagnetic spectrum. both of this we use everyday and see everyday and we also feel everybody day without it we wouldn 't have many thing we would have to day. Electromagnetic spectrum is a list of the most possible range of electromagnetic radiation around us. their many different electromagnetic radiation in the world. for example we got radio radiation, sun 's radiation

    There are 7 different types of electromagnetic spectrums, which are Gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet rays, visible light, infrared, microwaves and radio waves. Each of them has their unique characteristics and if you use them carefully, it can be utilized to benefit people from many ways. In this essay, I will focus about Gamma rays, and Infrared lights. Gamma ray was first discovered in 1900 by French physicist Paul Villard. When Villard found Gamma rays, he recognized it is different from X-rays

    Spectrum refers to the electromagnetic spectrum, which is the range of frequencies through which electromagnetic radiation travels. Electromagnetic radiation is the energy that travels at the speed of light in waves as a stream of photon particles. This form of energy encompasses radio waves, microwaves, visible, nonvisible light, X–rays and gamma rays, and these classifications are based upon the frequency at which the energy travels (see figure 1). In order to refer to a specific portion, also

    Electromagnetic Spectrum for the Middle School Student Waves are all around us and come in various forms. Sound waves can travel through air because air is made of molecules, which carry the sound. Another type of wave is electromagnetic waves, which are different than sound waves because they don’t need molecules to travel. This means that electromagnetic waves can travel through air and solid materials as well as empty space (Groleau 2011). The electromagnetic spectrum consists of all waves

  • Electromagnetism Essay

    Electromagnetism is mainly found in the form of radiation. It can come from the sun, or even a radio. It is contained in electric and magnetic fields, and much of it travels in waves. There are many different types of electromagnetic radiation held in the electromagnetic spectrum. Electromagnetism impacts our world through energy, waves and fields, radiation, and technology. Radiant and electronic energy both come from the sun and give off light. When light is absorbed, the photons (light energy)
