Visible Light

Why do we want to understand electromagnetic

radiation (light)?

- Well, for one thing, it may someday allow us to

become invisible.

Wavelength, frequency and energy

- Wavelength and frequency have an indirect

relationship. - Energy and frequency have a direct relationship.
- Electromagnetic radiation with a shorter

wavelength will have a higher frequency and

higher energy. - Electromagnetic radiation with a longer

wavelength will have a lower frequency and lower

energy.
