### Electromagnetic Spectrum

Should we memorize the specific wavelengths that correspond to certain colors and types of waves in the electromagnetic spectrum or will these be given to us on tests? (ex. 700 nm=red or 100 nm = ultraviolet)

### Re: Electromagnetic Spectrum

Hello,

You should know that 400 nm corresponds to violet light and 700 nm corresponds to red light. Naturally, this means that green light should be in the middle. IR light should be >700 nm, and UV light should be <400 nm

Hope this helps
