The Electromagnetic Spectrum is the different forms of radioactive energy that exists in our universe.

###### What is the Electromagnetic Spectrum?

Concept #1: The Electromagnetic Spectrum

Example #1: Which kind of electromagnetic radiation contains the greatest amount of energy per atom?

Concept #2: Visible Light Spectrum

Practice: Which of the following sources of electromagnetic radiation will have the highest energy?

Practice: A carbonâ€“oxygen double bond within a sugar molecule absorbs electromagnetic radiation at a frequency of 6.0 x 1012 s-1. What portion of the electromagnetic spectrum does this represent?

Practice: X-Ray detectors are devices that use scintillators to convert X-rays into light in order to detect X-Rays indirectly. Which of the following would be picked up by an X-Ray detector: radiation with a wavelength of 0.85 nm or a frequency of 6.52 x 1011 s-1?
