# Agenda

1. Look at sources of light 2. Electromagnetic Spectrum (EM Spectrum) 3. See homework on next slide Handy: Get workbooks from Study Guide B

They are in the back of the room. They can be kept here for notes. Please write in them. Start page 35. You should find answers from the lecture ppt.

Sources of Light

Sources of Light

Non-Sources of Light

Light =
Energy (waves transfer energy) EM wave Electromagnetic Radiation a form of radiation

## Light does not NEED to travel through matter

It CAN go through matter (stuff plastic or glass) It DOES go through the vacuum of space

7 types EM Waves

## The electromagnetic is the entire spectrum

Visible light
The electromagnetic spectrum is the entire range of electromagnetic waves.
Will focus on Visible light, mostly

## Bring out the rope look at waves

Visible light

When have you seen white light separated into colors in real life?
Is around 10-6 It is only a small band within the EM spectrum Wave length is the most important difference

EM wave =
consist of e~ and magnetic fields

## A rainbow occurs when sunlight shines through raindrops.

White Light
Draw and color how when you were looking through the glasses, you saw frequency white light separatedstretched out (Describe in words and also draw what you see when you use the diffraction disk to look at the white light)

White Light

1.

On a separate sheet of paper, draw a longer and a shorter wavelength. 1. Label which wave length is longest 2. Which one would represent a infrared wave? 3. Which one would represent a visible light wave

1. 2. 3. 4. Label which wave length is longest Which one would represent a infrared wave? Which one would represent a visible light wave Show that you understand what a wavelength is.

## 3R Electromagnetic Spectrum 02/10/10

(Use a few lines to draw a wave on your paper.) Electromagnetic Spectrum A range of different sized waves made of energy.

Infrared
Warmth heat

## http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ir_girl.png We are warmed from Infrared rays from the sun

All things give off infrared rays Warmer objects give off more Infrared waves than cooler objects

Humans

Bees

## 4L Electromagnetic Spectrum Reflection 02/11/10

Reflection Questions: (Answer the following questions in complete sentences: 1.What is the only part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we can see called? 2.Is that part a big or small part of the entire electromagnetic spectrum?)
