Speed Of Light Time Of Day
1,333 wordsOur view of the sky at night is possible because of the emission and reflection of light. 'Light' is the better-known term for the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes waves in the visible, ultra-violet, infra-red, microwave, radio, X-ray and gamma-ray regions. The scale of the spectrum is so large that no region is distinct, several overlap each other. Each of these regions in the electromagnetic spectrum represent transverse waves, travelling as electrical and magnetic fields which interac...

Ultraviolet Rays Gamma Rays
343 wordsI went to Hawaii on vacation to get a tan, but I got something else instead. Ultraviolet rays are stronger, and hotter near the equator. When I got home I got x-rays. I was sent for treatment with gamma rays. Wow! What a vacation. It was so hot that I had to jump into a pool just to cool off. Ultraviolet rays have wavelengths between 10 nm and 430 nm. They also have a very high frequency of about 10, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 Hz. - 1, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 Hz. Photon energy emissions are al...

Gamma Rays Weak Points
671 wordsGamma Rays are Waves on the electromagnetic Spectrum that have a Wavelength of 10 or Higher and 11 down. Gamma Rays are produced in labs through the process of nuclear collision and also through the artificial Radioactivity that accompanies these interactions. The high energy nuclei needed for the collisions are accelerated by such devices such as the Cyclotron and synchrotron. There are also many uses for Gamma rays in Medicine. Gamma Rays are used in medicine to kill and treat certain types of...

Long Term Effects World War Ii
2,387 wordsRadium is a silver-white, highly radioactive element. It? s atomic number is 88, and it is the heaviest alkali earth metal, having a mass number of 226. 025 (See Figure 1). Radium has at least twenty six isotopes, and all are radioactive (Shriver 1995). Since radium is chemically similar to calcium and magnesium, it is absorbed by the bones of animals. Once in the bones, it emits alpha, beta, and gamma rays (Shriver 1993). These rays shrink or destroy tissues and they are the reason radium is so...

Subatomic Particles Angular Momentum
3,969 wordsThe atom, although small in size and great in number, is one of the greatest enigmas in the science world today. Over 200 different subatomic particles have been found, and scientists are still looking for more. The most basic parts of the atom are the electron, the proton and the neutron. These three make up a small group of the know subatomic particles. Of these three only the electron is actually a fundamental particle. The proton and neutron are both hadrons composed of different smaller par...
