anonymous one year ago How small are the wavelengths of gamma ray radiation? A. smaller than an atom B. about the size of a golf ball C. about 10 times the size of an atom D. about the size of earth **:( thank you!!

please wait, I have to look at my table of atomic physics textbook

2. anonymous

ok!

3. Michele_Laino

the wave length of gamma rays is within ${10^{ - 11}}cm < \lambda < {10^{ - 10}}cm$

4. Michele_Laino

whereas the dimensions of an atom are about 10^-8 cm

okay! so does that mean that choice A is our solution?

6. Michele_Laino

yes!

7. anonymous

yay!! thank you!!
