# Which Ray has highest frequency?

types of electromagnetic radiation highest frequency to lowest
• Gamma rays. these have the most frequency but have the lowest wavelength.
• X rays. have the 2nd highest frequency.
• Ultraviolet light. has the 3rd highest frequency.
• Visible light. has the 4th lowest frequency.
• infared radiation. has the 5th lowest frequency.
• microwaves. has the 6th lowest frequency.

### Which one has the highest energy?

Radio waves, on the other hand, have the lowest energies, longest wavelengths, and lowest frequencies of any type of EM radiation. In order from highest to lowest energy, the sections of the EM spectrum are named: gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet radiation, visible light, infrared radiation, and radio waves.
• #### Which wavelengths have the most energy?

Red waves have a relatively long wavelength (in the 700 nm range), and violet waves are much shorter - roughly half that. Because violet waves have the shortest wavelength of the visible light spectrum, they carry the most energy.
• #### Which color has the highest frequency?

Therefore, the highest-frequency ultra-violet light (or the lowest wavelength) is violet. However, the highest-frequency visible light would have to be roughly blue.
• #### What color of light is associated with the least amount of energy?

This is because red has the longest wavelength of visible light and the longest frequency of any visible light colour. Red light has a wavelength of 610 - 740nm. Meaning that red has the least amount of energy level, whereas violet has the highest amount of visible light.

### Which electromagnetic waves have the highest energy?

The Electromagnetic spectrum lists the most powerful EMR, gamma rays, to the least powerful EMR, radio waves. In addition, the highest energy waves (gamma, x-ray) have the shortest wavelengths. The lowest energy waves, radio waves, have longest wavelengths.
• #### Which waves have the lowest energy?

Radio waves, on the other hand, have the lowest energies, longest wavelengths, and lowest frequencies of any type of EM radiation. In order from highest to lowest energy, the sections of the EM spectrum are named: gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet radiation, visible light, infrared radiation, and radio waves.
• #### Which color has the most energy and why?

Red waves have a relatively long wavelength (in the 700 nm range), and violet waves are much shorter - roughly half that. Because violet waves have the shortest wavelength of the visible light spectrum, they carry the most energy.
• #### What color has the highest frequency?

The higher the frequency, the faster the oscillations and thus the higher the energy. Therefore, the highest-frequency ultra-violet light (or the lowest wavelength) is violet. However, the highest-frequency visible light would have to be roughly blue.
C.

### Which wavelength of light has the highest energy?

Red waves have a relatively long wavelength (in the 700 nm range), and violet waves are much shorter - roughly half that. Because violet waves have the shortest wavelength of the visible light spectrum, they carry the most energy.
• #### Which type of wave has the most energy?

The Electromagnetic spectrum lists the most powerful EMR, gamma rays, to the least powerful EMR, radio waves. In addition, the highest energy waves (gamma, x-ray) have the shortest wavelengths. The lowest energy waves, radio waves, have longest wavelengths.
• #### Which type of light has the longest wavelength?

The visible colors from shortest to longest wavelength are: violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. Ultraviolet radiation has a shorter wavelength than the visible violet light. Infrared radiation has a longer wavelength than visible red light.
• #### Which contains more energy visible or infrared radiation?

Each photon contains a certain amount of energy. Radio waves have photons with low energies, microwave photons have a little more energy than radio waves, infrared photons have still more, then visible, ultraviolet, X-rays, and, the most energetic of all, gamma-rays.
