Does radio waves have the longest wavelength?
Correspondingly, why do radio waves have the longest wavelength?
Waves with the longest wavelengths have the lowest frequencies. Waves with the shortest wavelengths have the highest frequencies. Electromagnetic waves in the spectrum range from very long wavelength, low frequency radio waves to very short wavelength high frequency gamma rays.
Similarly, which wave has the longest wavelength?
Radio waves, infrared rays, visible light, ultraviolet rays, X-rays, and gamma rays are all types of electromagnetic radiation. Radio waves have the longest wavelength, and gamma rays have the shortest wavelength.
Radio waves are a type of electromagnetic (EM) radiation with wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum longer than infrared light. They have have frequencies from 300 GHz to as low as 3 kHz, and corresponding wavelengths from 1 millimeter to 100 kilometers.
