Light that is produced by an object (such as a metal filament) that is heated until it emits light.Very inefficient (only 5% of electrical energy is converted into light)
What is the symbol for a wavelength?λ
The ability to store energy from a source of light and slowly emit will eventually fade, but can quickly recharged.
Longest wave length and lowest frequncy.Used mainly for communications
The highest point of a wave
Rate of repetition of a wave.Measured in Hertz (cycles per second)
Main source of this type of wave is the sun and other stars.Used to disinfect water but can also lead to skin cancer.
Creating light through friction.Rubbing crystals of Wint-O-Green Lifesavers
Very high radiation form that is used for medical diagnosisAlso used for airport security.
A disturbance that transfers energy from one point to another without matter transfer.Do you really need a hint for this???
Extremely high energy radiation with one of the shortest wave lengths and highest frequencyBlack holes and neutron stars are the main producers. Used to sterilize medicine equipment or as a cancer treatment
Electric current passes through air or gas.Lightning, sparks
Distance from crest to crest Measured in Meters
The distance from the rest position to the crest
Light that is produced when a suitable substance is exposed to EM radiation.Tubes filled with mercury and the inside is coated with phosphor. When electric current passes through tube, mercury emits EM and phosphor glows.
f x λ = ?
Black _____ all colours.
What theory states that white light is composed of different colours (wavelengths) of light, such as red green and blue (primary colours).
Light produced by a chemical reaction.Very efficient as there is very little heat loss.
The lowest point of a wave
We experience this type of wave as heatBurglar alarms and night vision googles.
Second longest wave length and second lowest frequncy.Used in radar technology and to heat up food.
What is the symbol for frequency?
What theory states that coloured matter selectively absorbs different colours and that the absorbed colours are “subtracted” from the reflected light that is seen by the eye?
The ability of plants/animals to create visible light through chemical reactions.90% of all sea creatures use this
