The Seven Electromagnetic Waves

Radio Waves

Radio waves are known as one of the seven different electromagnetic waves they are used for long distance communication. The frequency range is 300 gHz to 3 kHz.

Examples of Radio Waves


a microwave is a wave with a wavelength of 300 MHz to 300 GHz. Microwaves are used in radar, in communications, and for heating in microwave ovens and in various industrial products.

Examples of Microwaves

Infrared Waves

Infrared Waves are light rays which are longer than light waves but shorter than radio waves. the frequency of these waves range from 430 THz to 300 GHz.

Visible Light Waves

visible light is defined as the wavelengths that are visible to most human eyes. These are the most common light waves because they are the easiest to detect. The frequency is between 430 THz to 770 THz.


Ultraviolet light Waves

Ultraviolet light Waves are a form of radiation which is not visible to the human eye. the Frequency is between 10 nm to 380 nm.


X rays

A high energy photon which is used for radiography, radiology, radiotherapy, and scientific research. The Frequency is between 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz.


Gamma Ray Waves

Gamma ray waves have low frequency and they are not easily visible to the human eye. The frequency is between 25 Hz to 100 Hz.
