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.
Electromagnetic radiation and its properties, and the electromagnetic spectrum.
This video ties the concepts of electromagnetic waves (microwaves) and standing waves. Did you know you can figure out the wavelength and energy of the microwaves by melting cheese?
Determining the wavelength or frequency of an electromagnetic wave using the equation c = Î»f
Distinguishing between the types of electromagnetic waves in terms of frequency and wavelength
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).
These flashcards help you study important terms and vocabulary from Electromagnetic Spectrum.
