The colors of light that has less energy than green light have to be determined. Concept introduction: Electromagnetic radiations are a type of energy surrounding us. They are of different types like radio waves, IR, UV, X-ray etc. Visible light lies between the wavelength region 400 nm to 700 nm 1. The green light lies in the visible light where it is between 520 nm and 560 nm . 2. The yellow light lies in the visible light where it is between 590 nm and 560 nm . 3. The red light lies in the visible light where it is between 700 nm and 635 nm

Chapter 6, Problem 2PS

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The colors of light that has less energy than green light have to be determined.

Concept introduction:

  • Electromagnetic radiations are a type of energy surrounding us. They are of different types like radio waves, IR, UV, X-ray etc.
  • Visible light lies between the wavelength region 400nm to 700nm
  1. 1. The green light lies in the visible light where it is between 520nm and 560nm.
  2. 2. The yellow light lies in the visible light where it is between 590nm and 560nm.
  3. 3. The red light lies in the visible light where it is between 700nm and 635nm

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The color of light with photons of great energy has to be determined among yellow and blue light.

Concept introduction:

  • Electromagnetic radiations are a type of energy surrounding us. They are of different types like radio waves, IR, UV, X-ray etc.
  • Visible light lies between the wavelength region 400nm to 700nm
  1. 1. The yellow light lies in the visible light where it is between 590nm and 560nm.
  2. 2. The blue light lies in the visible light where it is between 490nm and 450nm

(c)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The color of light that has higher frequency has to be determined among green and blue light.

Concept introduction:

  • Electromagnetic radiations are a type of energy surrounding us. They are of different types like radio waves, IR, UV, X-ray etc.
