Which colour has the greater frequency, red light or blue light? Slide 4: JParkinson © 4 THE FREQUENCY OF A WAVE IS THE NUMBER OF WAVES EMITTED PER SECOND Frequency, f, is measured in HERTZ Hz Slide 5: JParkinson © 5 The speed at which the crests move along, c, the frequency of the waves and their wavelength are related by the formula: c = f ? velocity = frequency times wavelength = c f x ? Slide 6: JParkinson © 6 The Electromagnetic Spectrum WAVELENGTH INCREASING FREQUENCY INCREASING HIGH FREQUENCY RADIATIONS TEND TO BE MORE PENETRATING ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION COMES IN BURST CALLED PHOTONS Slide 7: JParkinson © 7 Gamma Ray photon; wavelength 10-11 – 10-13 metres, i.e. about a million millionth of a metre APPLICATIONS: sterilizing medical equipment in hospitals pasteurizing certain foods to prolong shelf life treatment of cancer gauge the thickness of metal in steel mills radiography – patient ingests radioactive source, whereabouts in the body is then located with a gamma camera Slide 8: JParkinson © 8 X Ray photon; wavelength 10-9 – 10-11 metres, i.e. about a billionth of a metre… about the size of an atom APPLICATIONS: radiography treatment of cancer cells airport security checks studying atomic and molecular structure ….. X-Ray crystallography Slide 9: JParkinson © 9 Ultra Violet light wavelength 10-7 – 10-8 metres, i.e. about a ten millionth of a metre… the size of a virus APPLICATIONS: criminology…. some stains [e.g. blood] fluoresce under uv light security marking detection and destruction of bacteria phototherapy treatment of skin complaints, e.g. psoriasis Slide 10: JParkinson © 10 VISIBLE LIGHT wavelength about 0.5 micrometres [µm] or half a millionth of a metre Protazoa size Slide 11: JParkinson © 11 wavelength about 1mm to 1µm INFRA RED APPLICATIONS: night-time surveillance medical: CO2 laser surgery & thermal imaging weather forecasting remote controls heat seeking missiles Slide 12: JParkinson © 12 Wavelength: a few centimetres microwaves & radar APPLICATIONS: radar inc. weather forecasting cooking telecommunications inc. mobile phones Slide 13: JParkinson © 13 TV & RADIO APPLICATIONS & WAVELENGTHS: Ultra High Frequency - UHF for TELEVISION …… about 10 cm Very High Frequency - VHF for FM RADIO ……. about 1 metre Short Wave – SW … AM Radio …… 10m & 50m bands Medium Wave – MW … AM Radio …… 200 to 600m Long Wave – LW … AM Radio …… 1000 to 2000m You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
