2012 Midterm Q3c

Are we expected to know what wavelength values each atomic spectra region includes?

I'm pretty sure that if you know the wavelength for visible light, which is 400-700 nanometers, then you should be fine. (Red being around 700 nm, violet being around 400.)

In addition to the wavelengths of visie light I think we also should know the wavelengths of infrared and ultraviolet light and where they come in the spectra either before or after visible light.
