Step 1

Electromagnetic spectrum involves different radiations from the lowest to the highest frequency values. Some common radiations which are part of electromagnetic radiations are infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, X-rays, and gamma rays.

Step 2

The relation between energy and wavelength is:

Step 3

Substitute all values to calculate energy:

h= Plank’s constant = 6.626 x 10-34...
