Terms in this set (19)
300,000 km/s (so, the sunlight we see here on Earth left the Sun about 10 minutes ago)
Speed of light
light including both visible light and other forms of radiation from the sun
in ________________, plants use light energy to create chemical energy stored in bonds of sugar molecules
the study of light
__________________ are particles that make up light, and they are more intense if they contain more energy.
Light energy is always ____________.
because light is only visible when it has an object to bound off of
Why is space dark?
Because each color has a different wave length
Why do we see different colors of light?
very small amount of light
On the electromagnetic spectrum, how much of the types of energy is visible light?
waves along the electromagnetic spectrum that have long wavelengths, and low frequencies (low energy).
Am radio has the highest wavelength, lowest frequency, then FM radio.
Relatively low intensity energy in each photon.
are slightly shorter in wavelength than radio waves, but still fairly low energy (low frequencies). Also includes radar.
shorter wave lengths / higher energy (higher frequency) than microwaves, but longer wavelengths (lower frequency) than visible light
the rainbow of light that we can see--a tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum--higher energy/frequency and lower wavelength than infrared light, but lower energy/frequency and higher wavelength than ultraviolet light.
Higher energy/frequency than visible light--this light can create sunburn and damage skin. People give off infrared energy.
HIgher energy/frequency than ultraviolate rays.
Higher energy/frequency than soft x-rays
most dangerous for human exposure, very high energy, high frequency, small wavelength. Very high energy in each photon.
light in some wys behaves as a _____________ and in some ways behaves like a ____________.
light is the only form of energy that can travel in a _____________.
