Oscillating Frequency

Postby Emma Joy Schaetz 1E » Fri Oct 04, 2019 9:19 am

Can someone explain how the oscillation blue and red light works?

I think you're asking about the difference between red and blue light as in how they're different?. The oscillation in itself is just measured in frequency (Hertz) and red light has a longer wavelength than blue. Therefore, its frequency (oscillations per second) is lower than blue. Hope that helps some!

Longer wavelength means shorter frequency, (inverse relationship) since the longer wavelength can pass through less cycles in a set amount of time compared to shorter wavelengths. Blue light has a shorter frequency so it’s wavelength would be longer.
