The electromagnetic spectrum is made up of six different types of waves. Radio waves, Microwaves, Infrared waves, Visible light, Ultraviolet light, X-rays and Gamma rays. The radio waves are used to transmit radio and television signals. The infrared waves are used to tell temperature of areas. Visible light is all the colors that we can see. Ultraviolet light can help things grow but too much can cause diseases such as skin cancer. X-rays are used as a tool to find broken bones or take pitchers of our sun. Gamma rays are used in medical science but they are often used to produce images of our universe.
The electromagnetic spectrum is the organization of six different wavelengths and each of them is having their own use. "The rainbow of colors that we see in visible light represents only a very small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. On one end of the spectrum are radio waves with wavelengths billions of times longer than those of visible light. On the other end of the spectrum are gamma rays. These have wavelengths millions of times smaller than those of visible light. The spectrum in order from longest to shortest wavelengths is: Radio waves, Microwaves, Infrared waves, Visible light, Ultraviolet light, X-rays and Gamma rays" . The most familiar forms of the spectrum are radio waves and light waves. The reason for that is, that we listen to the radio or use its waves more often than we think. For instance cell phones work off of radio waves. Light waves are used more often than we think because with out light we wouldn't possibly be able to see color on any thing, o!.
r we wouldn't have photosynthesis which sunlight is used for. The term spectrum refers to light in general or the whole range of electromagnetic radiation.
The electromagnetic field was found in the 19th centuries. It was founded by James Clerk Maxwell of Scotland and published in 1865. The field is described in two quantities the electric component E and the magnetic component B and both charge in space and time.
