Wavelengths

Postby Sunia Akaveka 4I » Fri Nov 01, 2019 11:30 pm

Does anybody know if we're gonna be expected to know the specific wavelengths in nm for the midterm? Like for example, we're given a problem to solve for the wavelength then we have to say which type of radiation it is or maybe even which color the wavelength represents?

I don't think we would be responsible for the exact cut offs for the types of radiation but I would just make sure to know the wavelength region for visible light (400-700) and the regions for infrared and UV radiation.

yeah, I don't think we need to know exact cutoffs but it is important to know in what range visible light is and the ranges for infrared and ultraviolet. ultraviolet light is less than 400nm and infrared is more than 700nm. You don't have to state any info about the light type or if its visible unless the questions asks for it specifically.
