What is the arrangement of following types of photons of electromagnetic radiation in order of increasing energy: g-rays, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, microwaves, x-rays?

From lowest to highest energy, it goes: microwaves, visible light, UV rays, x-rays, gamma rays

You should be able to figure this problem out by knowing the general order of wavelengths, or checking a chart with the frequencies. Higher frequencies, or shorter wavelengths, correspond to higher energies, and vice versa. So, by checking a chart in the book with the frequencies of different forms of light, you can tell which energy is highest and lowest, and all in between.
