Incoming Light

Postby Mariah Guerrero 1J » Mon May 07, 2018 12:09 am

Hello!
I am working on n the post-module for the audio-visual focus topics and this question came up: In photoelectric experiments, typically what part of the electromagnetic spectrum is the incoming light?
A. Ultraviolet
B. Infrared
C. Visible light
D. Gamma rays
E. None of the above
I assumed the answer was ultraviolet light, as my notes show that the incoming light is part of the ultraviolet region in the electromagnetic spectrum. However, this is incorrect. Can someone explain the correct answer to me please?

Well done! UV is the correct answer! I would recommend going back and attempting the question again or refreshing the page. If it does not work, then please let us know!

I refreshed the page and the answer UV rays is still marked as incorrect.

It is definitely UV light as proven by the Ultraviolet catastrophe.

UV should definitely be the correct answer. Instead of refreshing the page, try taking the quiz again.
