The S3 Physics Block covers Beyond the Visible after covering light. Attached is the outcomes that you should cover in your course.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum
The electromagnetic (em) spectrum is a collection of transverse waves that all travel at the same speed in air, the speed of light, 300 000 000 m/s. (equivalent to 7.5 times round the Earth every second)
One of the waves is VISIBLE LIGHT
Others are RADIO & TV, MICROWAVE.
The others are INFRA-RED, ULTRA VIOLET, X-RAYS, GAMMA WAVES.
The only difference between each of these waves is their wavelength or frequency. They all fit the formula
Speed= frequency × wavelength
The order is important and to remember it use the following rhyme!
Randy Radio & TV
Period, T, is the time for one wave to pass a point and is measured in seconds.
Frequency, f is the number of waves being produced or passing a point per second. Frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz)
Homework- This is part of your assessment. Design a superhero with powers from one part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Give your superhero a name, list and explain their powers and any weaknesses that may arise. How can they be destroyed? All of the work should be related to Physics of the Electromagnetic Spectrum.
