Re: GAMSAT Chemistry Electromagnetic Spectrum
The following table provides important information that is crucial for the GAMSAT. In previous years the GAMSAT has directly tested the knowledge of students. Students were required to identify the color of light that has the longest wavelength or has the highest frequency out of a selected few.
An easy way to remember: Colours of rainbow = ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet). As you move across from red to violet, the wavelength decreases and the frequency increases.
Important equation to remember: v=c/λ
v (frequency) – number of wavelengths that pass a certain point in space per unit time
c (Speed of light)
λ (wavelength) – the distance between adjacent peaks in an oscillating field
Happy Studying 🙂
