Analyzing The Properties of Light

Analyzing The Properties of Light

Visible Light is but one part of the entire electromagnetic (EM) spectrum.

EM Spectrum includes all kinds of light

radio waves (all light moves at the same speed -

micro waves light speed)

infrared light

visible light

ultra violet light (some light photons have

x rays shorter wavelengths

gamma rays and more energy than others)

Slide 14

Visible light is only one type of electromagnetic radiation emitted by stars

Visible light is only one type of electromagnetic radiation emitted by stars

Each type of EM radiation travels at exactly the same speed - the speed of light!

Slide 15

Not all EM radiation can penetrate Earth’s atmosphere.

Slide 16

Astronomers use different instruments to look at light of different wavelengths - sometimes, we even have to go above Earth’s atmosphere.
