## Zofia1 2 years ago What are some examples of waves on the electromagnetic spectrum? Explain

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. The electromagnetic spectrum extends from below the low frequencies used for modern radio communication to gamma radiation at the short-wavelength (high-frequency) end, thereby covering wavelengths from thousands of kilometers down to a fraction of the size of an atom. The limit for long wavelengths is the size of the universe itself, while it is thought that the short wavelength limit is in the vicinity of the Planck length,[2] although in principle the spectrum is infinite and continuous. Most parts of the electromagnetic spectrum are used in science for spectroscopic and other probing interactions, as ways to study and characterize matter.[3] In addition, radiation from various parts of the spectrum has found many other uses for communications and manufacturing

@robert can you make tht any smaller paragraph?

err another physics question in the mathematics question... nvm waves in the electromagnetic spectrum = any of the waves that have wavelength 1Pm to 100 Mm. travels at speed of light. transverse waves. gamma radiation x-ray radiation uv visible light IF Microwave Radio waves

@irkiz, I dont get that.. :(

okey •While control of the entire electromagnetic spectrum is impossible, key portions must be commanded at the right time. •The family of electromagnetic waves from the high-frequency gamma rays to the relatively low-frequency radio waves forms what is called the electromagnetic spectrum.

@ROBERT3 thanks,

suppose a teacher asked me that question what would i say?
