2 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum1 Light and the Electromagnetic Spectrum Chapters 22 & 23

3 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum2 LIGHT: What Is It? Light Energy –Atoms As atoms absorb energy, electrons jump up to a higher energy level. Electrons release light when falling down to the lower energy level. –Photons - bundles/packets of energy released when the electrons fall. Light: Stream of photons © 2000 Microsoft Clip Gallery

4 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum3 An electromagnetic wave consists of electric and magnetic fields which vibrate thus making waves. Energy is perpendicular to direction of motion Moving photon creates electric & magnetic field which are at right angles to each other. © 2000 Microsoft Clip Gallery

5 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum4 LIGHT: Particles or Waves? Wave Model of Light –Explains most properties of light Particle Theory of Light –Photoelectric Effect – Photons of light produce free electrons © 2000 Microsoft Clip Gallery

6 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum5 Light Waves Properties of light waves include speed, frequency and wavelength Speed (s), frequency (f) and wavelength ( ) are related in the formula x f = s All EM waves travel at a speed of 300,000 km/s in a vacuum EM waves will travel at slower speeds through medium such as air, water and glass

7 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum6 Wavelength, Frequency and Energy Light with a short wavelength will have a high frequency and high energy. Light with long wavelengths have low frequencies and low energy

8 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum7 Chapter 22 Section 2 The Electromagnetic Spectrum

9 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum8

10 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum9 Electromagnetic Spectrum The electromagnetic spectrum is the complete spectrum or continuum of light including radio waves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet light, X- rays and gamma rays

11 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum10

12 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum11 Radio waves Low energy waves with long wavelengths and low frequencies Includes FM, AM, radar and TV waves Used in many devices such as remote control items, cell phones, wireless devices, etc. AM has longer wavelength, is used for audio portion of TV broadcasts and its long wavelength can bend around hills.

13 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum12 Modulating Radio Waves Modulation – variation of amplitude or frequency when waves are broadcast AM – amplitude modulation FM - frequency modulation

14 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum13 AM and FM AM – carries audio for TV broadcasts and its longer wavelengths bend around hills and tall buildings FM – carries video for TV broadcasts

15 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum14

16 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum15 Microwaves First used in radar, now used in communication, medicine and consumer use (microwave ovens)

17 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum16 Infrared waves Invisible electromagnetic waves that are detected as heat Can be detected with special devices such as night goggles Used in heat lamps

18 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum17

19 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum18 Visible Light The portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that human eyes can detect ROY G BIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) Red is the lowest frequency and violet is the highest frequency

20 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum19

21 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum20 Ultraviolet waves Higher energy than light waves Can cause skin cancer and blindness in humans Used in tanning beds, food processing and sterilizing equipment in hospitals, food processing Helps your body absorb Vitamin D

22 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum21 X-Rays High energy waves First discovered by Roentgen Used in medicine, industry and astronomy Can cause cancer Bones absorb x-rays but soft tissue does not Lead absorbs X-rays

23 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum22 Gamma rays Highest energy Shortest wavelength Come from outer space Blocked from Earth’s surface by atmosphere Can be used in cancer treatments

24 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum23

25 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum24 Time to think….. 1. What is the relationship between frequency and wavelength? 2. What is meant by ‘spectrum’? 3. What does ROY G BIV mean?

26 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum25 Now, let’s really think 4. Can you actually see x-rays? –Support your answer. 5. Which color is more energetic, red or yellow? 6. Which type of wave travels faster, gamma or radio? 7. Why are microwaves more dangerous than radio waves?

27 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum26 Think about it…. You have just been involved in a traffic incident that leaves you stranded on the side of the road. Which part of the electromagnetic spectrum would be of the most use to you and why?

28 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum27 Answers 1. Frequency and wavelength are properties of waves and since speed is constant for EM waves, as frequency increases, wavelength decreases. 2. Spectrum is a continuum of all electromagnetic waves 3, ROY G BIV is the difference colors of the visible light in order of longest wavelength to shortest wavelength. 4. X-rays can not be seen, only the waves in the visible light portion are visible. 5. Yellow is higher energy than red because it has a shorter wavelength and higher frequency. 6. Both travel at the same speed, 300,000 km/s (all em waves travel at the same speed) 7. Microwaves have a higher frequency than radio and carry more energy.

29 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum28 Chapter 22 Section 3 Interactions of Light

30 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum29 Refraction of Light Refraction – Bending of light due to a change in speed. –Index of Refraction – Amount by which a material refracts light. –Prisms – Glass that bends light. Different frequencies are bent different amounts & light is broken out into different colors.

31 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum30 Refraction – bending of light

32 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum31 Diffraction & Refraction Diffraction – Bending of waves around the edge of a barrier. New waves are formed from the original. breaks images into bands of light & dark and colors. Refraction – Bending of waves due to a change in speed through an object.

33 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum32 LIGHT & USES: Diffraction A diffraction grating. Each space between the ruled grooves acts as a slit. The light bends around the edges and gets refracted. © 2000 Microsoft Encarta

34 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum33 Reflection Reflection – Bouncing back of light waves –Regular reflection – mirrors smooth surfaces scatter light very little. Images are clear & exact. –Diffuse reflection – reflected light is scattered due to an irregular surface.

35 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum34 Chapter 22 Section 4 Light and Color

36 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum35 Color of Light Transparent Objects: –Light transmitted because of no scattering –Color transmitted is color you see. All other colors are absorbed. Translucent: –Light is scattered and transmitted some. Opaque: –Light is either reflected or absorbed. –Color of opaque objects is color it reflects. © 2000 Microsoft Clip Gallery

37 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum36 Color of Light (Cont.) Color of Objects –White light is the presence of ALL the colors of the visible spectrum. –Black objects absorb ALL the colors and no light is reflected back. © 2000 Microsoft Clip Gallery

38 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum37 Color of Light (Cont.) Primary Colors of Light –Three colors that can be mixed to produce any other colored light –Red + blue + green = white light Complimentary Colors of Light –Two complimentary colors combine to make white light-Magenta,Cyan,Yellow © 2000 Microsoft Clip Gallery

39 MAP TAP The Electromagnetic Spectrum38 Paint Pigments –Pigments absorb the frequency of light that you see –Primary pigments Yellow + cyan + magenta = black Primary pigments are compliments of the primary colors of light. © 2000 Microsoft Clip Gallery
