Gamma Waves By Kishok Inderaraj 12G Gamma radiation, also known as gamma rays, and denoted by the Greek letter γ, refers to electromagnetic radiation of an extremely high frequency and is therefore made up of high-energy photons. Gamma rays are ionizing radiation, and are thus biologically hazardous. They are classically produced by the decay of […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12 Physics Students"
X- Rays by Sambathkumar Uruthirakumar 12G Brief description X-rays are electromagnetic waves which have a very high frequency but a short wave length. They have wavelengths ranging from 0.01 to 10 nanometres with corresponding frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3 × E16 Hz to 3 × E19 Hz) and energies in […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12"
Ultraviolet light By Ahlaq Hyder 12V What is ultraviolet (UV) light? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8xx-cfzAeA Ultraviolet (UV) light is a type of electromagnetic radiation and is found in the electromagnetic spectrum between the longer wavelength visible light and the shorter wavelength X-rays. UV light has an approximate wavelength of 1 x E-8 and 4 x E-7 metres . […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12 Physics Students"
Visible Light by Shefali Srivastava 12I Brief description Our eyes are sensitive to light which lies in a very small region of the electromagnetic spectrum called ‘visible light’. This light corresponds to a wavelength range of 400-700 nanometres and a colour range of violet through red. The human eye is not capable of seeing waves […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12 Physics Students"

Microwaves by Seyar Azizi 12O This report is about microwaves and I will be writing about some of their properties and uses. I will also be writing about their history and their social and health aspects along with the benefits and risks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgQQb1BVnu8 Microwaves are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, on the side with […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12 Physics Students"
Radio waves By Jemin Jayapal 12O https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=al7sFP4C2TY Radio waves are a type of electromagnetic wave and are part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Like all EM waves they travel at a speed of 3 x E8 m/s in a vacuum but their wavelength range is between 1 millimetre and 100 kilometres (frequency range of 300 GHz […]Read more "The Electromagnetic Spectrum by Year 12 Physics Students"
