Study Notes

Electromagnetic Radiation

  • The distance traveled by one complete wave cycle of electromagnetic radiation is measured in wavelengths.

Spectrum of Radiant Energy

  • Radiant energy is characterized in terms of a spectrum, which is a range of frequencies and wavelengths.

Types of Light

  • Gamma rays have very short wavelengths.

Wavelength and Energy

  • There is an inverse relationship between wavelength and energy in light: as wavelength decreases, energy increases, and vice versa.

Properties of Electromagnetic Radiation

  • Electromagnetic radiation exhibits both wave-like and particle-like properties, characterized by its dual nature, also known as wave-particle duality.
