Electromagnetic Quiz Answers
1. Ionizing radiation means the kind of radiation which has enough high energy to eject electrons from atom or molecules. X-rays, Ultraviolet rays and Gamma rays fall in that category as they have high energy due to their lower wavelength and higher frequency, whereas microwaves don’t have that enough energy to eject electrons from an atom or molecule due to its high wavelength.
2. Spectroscopy can be used in this process of differentiating waves of different frequencies physically, ultimately producing a spectrum giving a list of consistent frequencies.
3. The wavelength decreases as it enters a more dense medium or a medium with a more refractive index than air or vacuum. The more the refractive index, the less the speed and less the wavelength.
4. Radiowaves are used for remote control operation. They are also used for Global Positioning System(GPS).
5. Microwaves are especially used in radar and also used in wireless communication or Wi-Fi technology.
