Wavelength is the distance from one crest of a wave to another, whereas frequency is the number of waves within a second.

Concept #1: Light energy can travel through space as electromagnetic radiation in the form of particles or waves.

Example #1: Based on the images given below, which electromagnetic wave has the highest frequency?

Concept #2: Wavelength & Frequency Relationship

Practice: Which energy wave would have the highest frequency from the wavelengths provided?
