Electromagnetic Spectrum By: snezhana Romanyuk

Radio waves: "Radio waves have the longest wavelengths from all the other waves. Radio waves are often used for carrying data from one place to the other also used for all sorts other applications including radio, satellites, radar, and computer network."
Infrared Rays: waves with wavelengths shorter than those of radio waves."Far infrared waves are thermal and give off heat. Anything that gives off heat radiates infrared waves. This includes the human body".
Visible Light: waves shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies. Electromagnetic waves that you can see are called visible light.
Ultraviolet Rays: Wavelengths shorter and higher frequencies. Ultraviolet rays is great enough to damage or kill living cells. Ultraviolet lamps are often used to kill bacteria on hospital equipment.
X-Ray: Wavelengths just shorter than those of ultraviolet rays, and frequencies just a little higher than ultraviolet rays. X-Rays are used to make images of bones inside the body or of teeth. X-Rays pass through skin and soft tissues, causing the photographic film in the X-Ray machine to darken when it is developed.
Gamma Rays: waves with the shortest wavelengths and highest frequencies. Because they have the greatest amount of energy, gamma rays are the most penetrating of all the electromagnetic waves.
