1 Chapter 18 Review

2 1. In 1926, Michelson was able to measure the speed of light using A lanterns B stars. C mirrors D sunlight.

3 2. To calculate the frequency of an electromagnetic wave, you need to know the speed of the wave and its A wavelength. B intensity. C refraction D amplitude.

4 3. Because light travels in a straight line and casts a shadow, Isaac
Newton hypothesized that light is A radiation. B a stream of particles. C a wave. D heat.

5 4. Electromagnetic waves vary in A the speed they travel in a vacuum. B wavelength and frequency. C the way they reflect. D their direction.

6 5. Light acts like A a wave. B a particle. C both a wave and a particle. D neither a wave nor a particle.

7 6. Photons travel outward from a light source in A a single straight line. B increasing intensity. C a small, dense area. D all directions.

8 7. Infrared rays have a shorter wavelength than A ultraviolet rays. B X-rays. C radar waves. D gamma rays.

9 A Far from the source, photons spread through a small area.
8. Which of the following occurs as light travels farther from its source? A Far from the source, photons spread through a small area. B The intensity of light increases as photons move away from the source. C The source gives off less light as photons move away from it. D Farther from the source, photons spread over a larger area.

10 9. The waves with the longest wavelengths in the
electromagnetic spectrum are A infrared rays. B radio waves. C gamma rays. D X-rays.

11 10. A translucent material A scatters some light. B transmits all light. C absorbs all light. D reflects all light.

12 11. Cellular telephones utilize A radar waves. B very high frequency waves. C very low frequency waves. D microwaves.

13 12. The visible light spectrum ranges between
A radar waves and X-rays. B television waves and infrared rays. C infrared rays and ultraviolet rays. D ultraviolet rays and gamma rays.

14 13. Which of the following occurs
as a light wave bends when it passes from one medium into another? A constructive interference B refraction C destructive interference D reflection

15 14. A material that reflects or
absorbs all of the light that strikes it is A translucent B opaque C black D white

16 15. In order of increasing frequency,
the electromagnetic waves are radio waves, infrared waves, A microwaves, visible light, X-rays and gamma rays B visible light, UV rays, X-rays and gamma rays C gamma rays, X-rays, UV rays and visible light D gamma rays, X-rays, visible light and UV rays

17 16. Objects appear fuzzy through a material that is A transparent B translucent C opaque D polarized

18 17. Microwaves and radar are examples of A infrared waves B radio waves C X-rays D UV rays

19 Answer Key C 7. C 13. B A 8. D 14. B B 9. B 15. B B 10. A 16. B
