Does anyone know if we will be provided the wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum ?

As far as I know, you will not be provided the wavelengths, so you should know the general ranges. You most likely will not need to know the specific colors of visible light, like red or green. Also, it may be helpful to know the spectrum in order of lowest to highest frequency.

I think only constants and formulas would be given on the front page. Information like ranges of high to low frequency and wavelength would not be given but it would be helpful to know.

I took the test today, and we were not provided with the wavelengths. You should have a general idea of the sizes though--for example, x-rays<UV<visible light<infrared<microwaves. The front of the test only has constants and equations, as it did for the previous test.

Not 100% sure, but you may be given the the frequencies of blue and red light.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, if you know that the wavelength for red light is 700 nm and for violet light is 400 nm, you're set.

its usually not provided, you should probably just know a ballpark around what each wavelength represents
