The full set of EM radiation is called the electromagnetic spectrum. To simplify things the EM spectrum divided into sections (such as radio, microwave, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma-rays). The EM spectrum is continuous (has no gaps) and infinite.
Which electromagnetic waves has the longest wavelength?
Radio waves, infrared rays, visible light, ultraviolet rays, X-rays, and gamma rays are all types of electromagnetic radiation. Radio waves have the longest wavelength, and gamma rays have the shortest wavelength.
What type of electromagnetic radiation has the longest wavelength the shortest?
Order is as follows (shortest to longest wavelength): Gamma, X-Rays, UV, Visible, Infrared, Microwaves, Radio Waves.
Which of the following electromagnetic radiation has higher wavelength?
EXPLANATION: The radio waves has the longest wavelength among all given options.
Which has a longer wavelength microwaves or infrared?
Microwaves have a longer wavelength than infrared light, between 1 mm and 30 cm.
What kind of wave has the second longest wavelength?
The electromagnetic spectrum includes, from longest wavelength to shortest: radio waves, microwaves, infrared, optical, ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma-rays.
What is the shortest wavelength possible?
The shortest wavelength photon ever detected (so far) is a 16 TeV gamma ray, which comes out to about 1 billionth of a nanometer.
