The light having higher frequency has to be determined among amber and green 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. The visible light lies in the region between 400 nm and 700 nm . The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength. ν = c λ where, c = speed of light ν = frequency λ = wavelength

Solutions

Chapter 6, Problem 3PS

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The light having higher frequency has to be determined among amber and green 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.
  • The visible light lies in the region between 400nm and 700nm.
  • The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength.

  ν=cλwhere, c=speedoflightν=frequencyλ=wavelength

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The frequency of amber light has to be calculated.

Concept introduction:

The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength.

  ν=cλwhere, c=speedoflightν=frequencyλ=wavelength
