Problem: Consider the two waves shown here , which we will consider to represent two electromagnetic radiations.Identify the region of the electromagnetic spectrum to which wave B belongs.

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to identify the region of the electromagnetic spectrum to which wave B belongs:

A diagram shows that over a distance of 1.6 times 10 to negative 7 meters, wave A completes 3 and ¾ cycles and wave B completes two cycles.


Recall that in the electromagnetic spectrum, radiation:

• On the left side: has high energy and frequency and a low wavelength

• On the right side: has low energy and frequency and high wavelength
