The colour in visible light having highest and lowest frequency has 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. Violet colour has the lowest wavelength between 390 nm to 455 nm and red colour has the highest wavelength between 622 nm and 780 nm The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength. ν = c λ where, c = speed of light ν = frequency λ = wavelength

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The colour in visible light having highest and lowest frequency has 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.
  • Violet colour has the lowest wavelength between 390nm to 455nm and red colour has the highest wavelength between 622nm and 780nm
  • The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength.

  ν=cλwhere, c=speedoflightν=frequencyλ=wavelength

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The wavelength of microwave radiation is whether longer or shorter than radiation from FM radio station has 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.
  • The wavelength of x-ray radiation is around 0.01nm to 10nm whereas the wavelength of ultraviolet radiation is between 100nm and 400nm.
  • The frequency of the light is inversely proportional to its wavelength.

ν=cλwhere, c=speedoflightν=frequencyλ=wavelength

(c)
