Electromagnetic Spectrum Lab

This is a video that helped me learn the different wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum 🙂

Since I am a little bit color blind, the lab for this wasn’t fun. The blues and purples mixed together and so did the reds, oranges, and yellows. The point of the lab was to see that everything has a different “barcode” of the spectrum.

The electromagnetic spectrum has a range for all the light frequencies. The video explains their order. Once you listen to it, you’ll most likely never forget the order. It’s a really catchy song.

Gamma rays are the shortest wavelengths and they’re the fastest. Radio waves are the longest and also the slowest. The shorter the wave is, the faster they will travel.
