## What is the longest wavelength that can be heard by a normal ear?

Equivalently, for 20 kHz, which is the highest frequency most humans can hear, the wavelength would be 340 meters divided by 20,000, and that is 1.7 cm.

## What is the shortest type of wavelength?

Gamma Radiation has the shortest wavelength. Order is as follows (shortest to longest wavelength): Gamma, X-Rays, UV, Visible, Infrared, Microwaves, Radio Waves.

## What is the shortest wavelength that can be heard in water?

between 7 cm to 75 m.

The wavelength of audible sound in water is between 7 cm to 75 m. Sound is pressure waves that animals or humans can hear. For humans that range is about 20 Hz to 20kHz, corresponding to wavelengths from 77 m to 0,077 m under water.

## What is the wavelength of a sound wave in air at 20 C with a frequency of 22 MHz?

15.64μm

What is the wavelength of a sound wave in air at 20^(@)C with a frequency of 22 Mhz? λ=344/22×106=15.64×10-6m=15.64μm.

## What is the effect of frequency on wavelength?

Frequency and wavelength are inversely proportional to each other. The wave with the greatest frequency has the shortest wavelength. Twice the frequency means one-half the wavelength.

## What is the shortest wavelength color?

violet light

Blue or violet light has the shortest wavelength. White light is a combination of all colors in the color spectrum. It has all the colors of the rainbow.

## Which of the following wavelength are from shortest to longest?

The electromagnetic spectrum includes, from longest wavelength to shortest: radio waves, microwaves, infrared, optical, ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma-rays.

## Who has the shortest wavelength?

Gamma rays

Gamma rays have the shortest wavelength and the highest energy among the other waves in the electromagnetic spectrum. The wavelength of the gamma rays is less than 0.01 nanometers.

## What does shorter wavelength mean?

So, if the wavelength of a light wave is shorter, that means that the frequency will be higher because one cycle can pass in a shorter amount of time. That means that longer wavelengths have a lower frequency. Conclusion: a longer wavelength means a lower frequency, and a shorter wavelength means a higher frequency!

## Which color of light has the shortest wavelength?

Blue or violet light has the shortest wavelength. White light is a combination of all colors in the color spectrum.

## Which has a shorter wavelength green or yellow?

Yellow light has a longer wavelength than green light.
