Electromagnetic Radiation

Common Characteristics

Travels at speed of light

The higher the frequency, the more likely the radiation is ionizing

Differences in wavelength results in different colors

Energy carried is dependent upon frequency and amplitude

Propagation may occur both in vacuum and material

Spectrum

380-435 nm - Violet 436-500 nm - Blue 501-520 nm - Cyan 521-565 nm - Green 566-590 nm - Yellow 591-625 nm - Orange 626-740 nm - Red

Anything with higher frequency will be ionizing

Anything at the visible spectrum or below is safe

Secondary colors may be created by overlapping primary color EMR

Alternative approach is to use subtractive model by mixing red, yellow, blue, or magenta, yellow, and cyan to create necessary colors

NOT SURE ABOUT: Physical vs. Physiological light
