The power point covers the electromagnetic spectrum, light, photons, waves and their characteristics. the relationship between frequency, wavelength, and the speed of light are introduced with the formula for speed of light. Calculating the energy of the electromagnetic waves is also covered with introduction to Planck's constant and the energy formula derived using the constant.
Electromagnetic Spectrum-- is the collective term for all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. The "electromagnetic spectrum" of an object has a different meaning, and is instead the characteristic distribution of electromagnetic radiation emitted or absorbed by that particular object.
This 23 slide set covers the basics of the electromagnetic spectrum including: • the different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum (radio, microwave, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, x-rays, gamma), • the relationship between wavelength, frequency, and energy, • and the characteristics and uses of each part of the electromagnetic spectrum
