Corresponding Wavelength/Frequency for Each Type of Wave?

Postby Nicholas Carpo 1L » Thu Oct 18, 2018 12:33 pm

I saw that in a few numbers in the textbook practice problems ask for the type of wave that corresponds with the wavelength/frequency you solved. I was just wondering if there is a strict range (ie. 400-700nm) for each wave type on the electromagnetic spectrum. Thanks!

Hey, Nicholas, there actually is a range of measurements to correlate wavelength/frequency to identify what type of wave it is. I attached an image to this post that shows the ranges. Hope this helps!

You can find the specific numerical range on this website, too!
