We’re being asked to rank the given electromagnetic radiation in order of decreasing wavelength


We’re given the following radiation:

Red Light             Radio Waves            Microwaves               Infrared Light      

Ultraviolet Light    X-rays                       Gamma Rays            Violet Light


Recall that in the electromagnetic spectrum, radiation:

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

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