The diagram to the left shows the electromagnetic
spectrum and some of the different types of radiant
energy. The component of the spectrum between
ultraviolet light and infrared light interacts with the human eye allowing us to see. What is this component of the electromagnetic spectrum called?

The sun emits all the different types of radiant energy on the electromagnetic spectrum. The Earth does not receive the full impact of all this radiation. The ozone layer in the Earth’s atmosphere absorbs and helps toblock which type of radiant energy?
Which of the above waves has the longest wavelength?
A. Wave #1
B. Wave #2
C. Wave #3
D. Wave #4
Describe compressional and transverse waves. Explain the difference between them. You must include the parts of each type of wave in your explanation along with the definition of the wave.
Both types of waves are produced by something vibrating. Compressional waves move back and forth along the same direction the wave is moving. Transverse waves move by causing matter to move at right angles to the direction the wave is moving.
A. heat up.
B. cool down.
C. slow down.
Outer ear – collects sound wavesMiddle ear – amplifies or boosts the sounds we hear.Inner ear – sends nerve pulses to the brain that we interpret as sound.
A student is investigating how light behaves when it strikes different surfaces. She has a frosted window glass pane, a clear window glass pane, a mirror, and a piece of cardboard. Which of these objects will scatter the most light? Explain your answer.
Why didn’t the light travel in a straight line? Explain what causes this.
Light waves are focused by the lens in your eye on the retina. The light is then sent as a signal to the brain through optic nerve, which causes images to be seen.
A. Its path widens.
B. Its path bends.
C. Its path becomes shorter.
D. Its path continues in a straight line
Which of the following characteristics of a wave determine where it will fall within the wave spectrum (shown above)?
HOW IT IS USED
Cornea – protects the eye; it is also where light entering the eye gets refracted first. Lens – further refracts light that enters the eye and focuses images on the retinaRetina – The retina is composed of tiny light sensitive nerves that transfer the energy of the light waves to nerve impulses. Optic nerve – the nerve impulses get sent to the brain through the optic nerve which the brain interprets as sight.
Name the different types of electromagnetic waves from longest to shortest wavelength. Give an example of the usage of each type of wave.
Radio waves – radio & tv, satellites, microwaves
Infrared – used to detect or produce heat
Visible light – used to see
U V rays – helps the body produce vitamin B;used to treat skin conditions
X-Rays – used to photograph bones
Gamma Rays – used to kill bacteria, radiation therapy
