Electromagnetic Radiation- the energy transferred through space by electromagnetic waves.
Polarized Light- light that has been filtered so that all of its waves are parallel to each other.
Photoelectric effect- the ejection of electrons from a substance when light is shined on it.
Photon- A tiny particle or packet of light energy.
What Makes Up an Electromagnetic Wave
Characteristics of electromagnetic wave
what models explain how electromagnetic waves behave
wave model of light
particle model of light
Electro- magnetic Spectrum
This image shows the frequency increase from microwaves to gamma waves.
Electro- magnetic Radiation
This graph shows the wavelength and energy of electromagnetic Radiation.
Photo- electric Effect
This graph shows how the photoelectric effect works. Strong photons hit the surface of the material (metal) and causes electrons to be ejected.
