## What is the range of electromagnetic?

The electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) is the general name given to the known range of electromagnetic radiation. Wavelengths increase from approximately 1018 m to 100 km, and this corresponds to frequencies decreasing from 3 × 1026 Hz to 3 ×103 Hz.

## What are the 7 ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum?

The EM spectrum is generally divided into seven regions, in order of decreasing wavelength and increasing energy and frequency. The common designations are: radio waves, microwaves, infrared (IR), visible light, ultraviolet (UV), X-rays and gamma rays.

## What are parts of the range of the electromagnetic spectrum?

In order from highest to lowest energy, the sections of the EM spectrum are named: gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet radiation, visible light, infrared radiation, and radio waves.

## What is the range of electromagnetic micro waves?

The microwave region extends from 1,000 to 300,000 MHz (or 30 cm to 1 mm wavelength).

## What is range of visible spectrum?

The visible wavelengths cover a range from approximately 0.4 to 0.7 µm. The longest visible wavelength is red and the shortest is violet. Common wavelengths of what we perceive as particular colours from the visible portion of the spectrum are listed below.

## What is the energy range of the blue spectrum?

Wavelengths of light range from about 400 nm at the violet end of the spectrum to 700 nm at the red end (see table).

## What is the wavelength range and frequency range of light?

Visible light has a wavelength range from ~400 nm to ~700 nm. Violet light has a wavelength of ~400 nm, and a frequency of ~7.5*1014 Hz.

Type of Radiation Frequency Range (Hz) Wavelength Range
visible 4 – 7.5*1014 750 nm – 400 nm
near-infrared 1*1014 – 4*1014 2.5 μm – 750 nm

## What is the highest frequency?

Gamma rays have the highest frequency in the electromagnetic spectrum. They have a frequency of the order of about 1020 to 1022 Hz.

## What is the highest energy?

Gamma rays have the highest energies and shortest wavelengths on the electromagnetic spectrum.

## What is the frequency range of gamma rays?

Gamma rays have frequencies greater than about 10^19 cycles per second, or hertz (Hz), and wavelengths of less than 100 picometers (pm), or 4 x 10^9 inches. (A picometer is one-trillionth of a meter.)

## What is the frequency range of ultraviolet?

Ultraviolet (UV) light falls in the range of the EM spectrum between visible light and X-rays. It has frequencies of about 8 × 1014 to 3 × 1016 cycles per second, or hertz (Hz), and wavelengths of about 380 nanometers (1.5 × 105 inches) to about 10 nm (4 × 107 inches).

## Which of these is the same for all forms of electromagnetic?

Speed of light ( c ): The velocity of radiation as it travels through a vacuum. This quantity is the same for all forms of electromagnetic radiation, from x-rays to light to radio waves, and is constant within a particular transportation medium.
