Textbook Chapter 1, Question 9

Postby Alexandria_Leaf_2F » Tue Oct 04, 2016 12:12 am

A college student recently had a busy day. Each of the student;s activities on that day (reading, getting a dental x-ray, making popcorn in a microwave oven, and acquiring a suntan) involved radiation from a different part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Complete the following table and match each type of radiation to the appropriate event.

I understand how to find the frequency, wavelength, and energy of photon on the table for question 9 using the equations "E=hv" and "c=vλ", but once you solve all those blanks, how do you determine what the event is?

Use table 1.9 as described on page 6 to determine what wavelength corresponds to what type of wave.
