How would I find where radiation with a wavelength of 80 μm is found using the graph below? What region would this wavelength belong to? (Microwave, X-ray, gamma-ray, radio, infrared, ultraviolet, visible)I know the first step would be to convert the wavelength to meters but what do I do after this?

Expert Answer

Step 1

Given,

Wavelength of a radiation = 80 μm

Firstly, we have to convert micro meter (μm) to meter (m) :

Step 2

Now, from the graph given, we need to determine in which region a wavelength of 8 × 10-5 m will lie.

Looking at the graph, the region of infrared (IR) radiation r...
