light regions

Postby Sarah Blake-2I » Sun Oct 20, 2019 9:29 pm

Do we need to memorize what wavelengths correspond with what light region? Some of the homework questions ask for the region, for instance B.15 d asks to clarify what region 8.8 nm is in (x ray, visible, uv, etc), so I am just a little bit confused on identifying the region and whether we have to memorize it.

My TA told us that we have to memorize it. I believe a wave that is 8.8 nm is in the x-ray region.

Is there an easy way to memorize the regions with the corresponding values? Do you use any mnemonic devices?

Not too sure, but our TA said to know at the very least the values that divide the ultraviolet region, visible light region, and infrared region since these are the most commonly utilized in calculations.
