Students will learn what an electromagnetic wave is, gain a feel for the main parts of the spectrum and work problems involving basic properties of electromagnetic waves.
Learn about light as an electromagnetic wave, and how to relate its wavelength and frequency to the electromagnetic field pattern it creates.
An original music video on the electromagnetic spectrum.
Calculate the frequency or wavelength of a wave on the EM spectrum, know the order of waves in terms of energy/frequency/wavelength, and that they all travel at the speed of light.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Electromagnetic Spectrum.
This study guide provides a brief review of light's behavior as a wave (interference, diffraction, and Doppler effect).
