The increasing order of energy among the given types of radiation should 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. Wavelength of visible light lies between 400 nm to 700 nm The wavelength of X-ray radiation lies between 0.01 nm to 10 nm . The wavelength of microwave radiation is in between 30 cm and 1 mm . The wavelength of radio wave radiation is in between 1 mm and 100 km . Planck’s equation, E = hν where, E = energy h = Planck's constant ν = frequency The energy increases as the wavelength of the light decrease. Also the energy increases as the frequency of the light increases.

Solutions

Chapter 6, Problem 9PS
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The increasing order of energy among the given types of radiation should 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.
  • Wavelength of visible light lies between 400nm to 700nm
  • The wavelength of X-ray radiation lies between 0.01nm to 10nm.
  • The wavelength of microwave radiation is in between 30cm and 1mm.
  • The wavelength of radio wave radiation is in between 1mm and 100km.
  • Planck’s equation,

    E=where, E=energyh=Planck'sconstantν=frequency

The energy increases as the wavelength of the light decrease. Also the energy increases as the frequency of the light increases.
