# Your question: Which part of the electromagnetic spectrum has the most energy?

Contents

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

## What part of the electromagnetic spectrum has the least energy?

Radio waves have photons with the lowest energies. Microwaves have a little more energy than radio waves. Infrared has still more, followed by visible, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays.

## Which part of the electromagnetic spectrum is the fastest?

Photons travel in harmonic waves at the fastest speed possible in the universe: 186,282 miles per second (299,792,458 meters per second) in a vacuum, also known as the speed of light.

## Which part of the electromagnetic spectrum is the longest?

Radio waves have the longest wavelength, and gamma rays have the shortest wavelength.

## Which light has the highest energy?

In our case of visible light, the highest frequency color, which is violet, which means it will have the highest energy.

## Which of the following photons has the greatest energy?

Gamma rays, a form of nuclear and cosmic EM radiation, can have the highest frequencies and, hence, the highest photon energies in the EM spectrum.

## Which wave has the greatest speed?

Primary waves are longitudinal waves that travel with the greatest speed. Which of the following correctly describes wave motion? Longitudinal waves consist of compressions and rarefactions moving parallel to the wave motion. You just studied 53 terms!

## Which of the following types of radiation has the highest energy?

Gamma rays have the highest energy and shortest wavelength. Then come X-rays, ultraviolet light, visible light, infrared radiation and microwave radiation. Finally, radio waves have the lowest energy and longest wavelength.

## Which of the following has the highest frequency?

The frequency of Gamma rays is the highest.

## Which of the following is correct in order of lowest to highest energy?

The order of energy from least to greatest is: microwaves, infrared, red, ultraviolet, and gamma waves.

## Which has more energy red light or green light?

So, higher the frequency, higher the energy. Hence, green light has more energy than red light.

## Which wave has lowest frequency?

Radio waves have the lowest frequency.

## Where is the energy lowest?

The lowest energy level of a system is called its ground state; higher energy levels are called excited states.
