# A photon of which electromagnetic radiation has the most energy?

Gamma rays have the highest energies, the shortest wavelengths, and the highest frequencies. Radio waves, on the other hand, have the lowest energies, longest wavelengths, and lowest frequencies of any type of EM radiation.

## In this regard, which electromagnetic radiation has the highest energy?

Gamma rays have the highest energies and shortest wavelengths on the electromagnetic spectrum.

## From these considerations, which type of radiation has the highest energy per photon?

Gamma rays, a form of nuclear and cosmic EM radiation, can have the highest frequencies and, hence, the highest photon energies in the EM spectrum.

## Besides, how do you know which photon has the highest energy?

The Planck relation states that the energy of a photon is directly proportional to the frequency of the radiation. you see that gamma radiation, with frequencies in the range of 1020Hz is highest.

## Do you have your own answer or clarification?

#### Which color has the highest energy Why?

Waves with a short wavelength 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.

#### How dangerous is a neutron star?

Neutron stars can be dangerous because of their strong fields. If a neutron star entered our solar system, it could cause chaos, throwing off the orbits of the planets and, if it got close enough, even raising tides that would rip the planet apart. But the closest known neutron star is about 500 light-years away.

#### How fast is a supernova explosion?

When supernovae explode, they jettison matter into space at some 9,000 to 25,000 miles (15,000 to 40,000 kilometers) per second. These blasts produce much of the material in the universe—including some elements, like iron, which make up our planet and even ourselves.

#### Is a supernova faster than light?

Supernovae are the death throes of a massive star that has reached the end of its life. These expanding shells are known as supernova remnant. While these ejecta move fast (for us humans) with speeds of about 20 000 km/h, they are much slower than the speed of light - which is 300 000 km/s.

#### How fast do neutron stars travel?

One measure of such immense gravity is the fact that neutron stars have an escape velocity ranging from 100,000 km/s to 150,000 km/s, that is, from a third to half the speed of light. The neutron star's gravity accelerates infalling matter to tremendous speed.

#### Is blue or red light faster?

Because the number of subquantum energy in a red photon is less than that of a blue photon, red photon interactions are less than the blue photon in the medium. So, the red light travels faster than the blue light.

#### What happens if you touch a neutron star?

So when anything tries to touch neutron star, it would be suck in by gravity and collapse into lump of neutrons and feed their mass into that neutron star. And if it collects enough mass it would collapse into a black hole. Despite pop-science descriptions, neutron stars do not contain only neutrons.

#### Is a black hole faster than light?

Using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have seen that the famous giant black hole in Messier 87 is propelling particles at speeds greater than 99% of the speed of light.

#### Do neutron stars die?

A neutron star does not evolve. It just cools down by emitting radiation. So, left to itself, it would never “die”, just become colder and colder. If a neutron star is accreting matter, then it may eventually cross the limiting mass (Tolman–Oppenheimer–Volkoff limit - Wikipedia ) and collapse.

#### Which photon has the least energy?

Radio waves have photons with the lowest energies. Microwaves have a little more energy than radio waves. Infrared has still more, followed by visible, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays.

#### Is UV light faster than light?

Ultraviolet radiation has shorter waves than blue or violet light, and thus oscillates more rapidly and carries more energy per photon than visible light does. Light travels at a speed of 299,792 kilometers per second (about 186,282 miles per second).

#### What is the happiest color in the world?

Yellow is widely recognized as the happiest color in the world and comes with a scientific pedigree to back up this esteemed honor. Research has suggested two main reasons why yellow is considered the happiest color. Many studies have linked the psychological powers of yellow to the sun.

#### What color has highest frequency?

Violet waves have the highest frequencies.

#### Which wave is faster than light?

1. The Big Bang itself expanded much faster than the speed of light. But this only means that "nothing can go faster than light." Since nothing is just empty space or vacuum, it can expand faster than light speed since no material object is breaking the light barrier.

#### What is inside a neutron star?

Inside what are called neutron stars, atomic matter is, however, known to collapse into immensely dense nuclear matter, in which the neutrons and protons are packed together so tightly that the entire star can be considered one single enormous nucleus.

#### Why do we see red sunsets?

At sunrise and sunset, the Sun is very low in the sky, which means that the sunlight we see has travelled through a much thicker amount of atmosphere. The shorter wavelength blue light is scattered further, as the sunlight passes over a greater distance, and we see the longer wavelength yellow and red light.

#### What is Goku's top speed?

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot estimates that Goku's power levels are around 10 billion as of the Babidi Saga. By applying the same formula, this means that Goku, without Instant Transmission, can travel 22.321 trillion MPH -- or 33,314 times the speed of light!

#### What happens when two neutron stars collide?

A neutron star merger is a type of stellar collision. When the two neutron stars meet, their merger leads to the formation of either a more massive neutron star, or a black hole (depending on whether the mass of the remnant exceeds the Tolman–Oppenheimer–Volkoff limit).

#### Which color is the most refracted?

When white light passes through a prism, violet is the color that is refracted the most.

#### Is 5G faster than light?

From Dial-Up to 5G: Data Speeds Faster Than Light.

#### Can a black hole die?

It's not much since a typical black hole will emit only one particle every year, but it's not nothing. A good size black hole — say, a few times more massive than the sun — will take about 10^100 years to eventually evaporate through this process, known as Hawking Radiation.

#### What are the color that have higher energy than red?

Blue light has a higher frequency and carries more energy than red light. The wavelengths of light waves are very, very short, just a few 1/100,000ths of an inch.

#### What is fastest thing in the universe?

Laser beams travel at the speed of light, more than 670 million miles per hour, making them the fastest thing in the universe.

#### What is the highest frequency possible?

Gamma rays have the highest energies, the shortest wavelengths, and the highest frequencies.

#### What color has the highest energy?

The frequency of the radiation is proportional to its energy and the wavelength of the radiation is inversely proportional to the energy. Red is the lowest energy visible light and violet is the highest.

#### What is faster gravity or light?

Kopeikin and Fomalont concluded that the speed of gravity is between 0.8 and 1.2 times the speed of light, which would be fully consistent with the theoretical prediction of general relativity that the speed of gravity is exactly the same as the speed of light.

#### Does anything travel faster than light?

Nothing can move faster than the speed of light. When Einstein set forth his theory of relativity, this was his inviolable postulate: that there was an ultimate cosmic speed limit, and that only massless particles could ever attain it. All massive particles could only approach it, but would never reach it.
