Lesson Worksheet: The Electromagnetic Spectrum Science

In this worksheet, we will practice relating visible light colors to the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation.

Q1:

Which of the following is the correct meaning of the term electromagnetic spectrum?

  • AAll of the frequencies of electromagnetic radiation that are not visible
  • BAll of the visible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation
  • CAll of the possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation

Q2:

Which of the following is the correct meaning of the term visible light spectrum?

  • AAll of the possible wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation
  • BAll of the wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation that humans cannot see
  • CAll of the wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation that humans can see

Q3:

Complete the following sentence: Light waves are an example of waves.

  • Aelectromagnetic
  • Bmechanical

Q4:

Which of the two ranges shown correctly shows how the colors of light in the visible spectrum relate to the wavelengths of electromagnetic waves in the electromagnetic spectrum?

  • ARange B
  • BRange A

Q5:

  • AWhite
  • BYellow

Q6:

What is the approximate wavelength above which electromagnetic radiation is not visible?

  • A700 nanometers
  • B400 nanometers

Q7:

What is the approximate wavelength below which electromagnetic radiation is not visible?

  • A700 nanometers
  • B400 nanometers

Q8:

Which of the following statements is correct?

  • AOnly a small portion of the possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation are visible.
  • BNo frequencies of electromagnetic radiation are visible.
  • CAll frequencies of electromagnetic radiation are visible.

Q9:

The diagram shows how the colors of light in three light spectra compare to the wavelengths of light for these colors. Each spectrum shows the same wavelength for red light. Waves of red light are shown at the bottom of the dashed line that touches the red end of each spectrum. Which spectrum correctly shows how the wavelength of violet light compares to the wavelength of red light?

  • ARange A
  • BRange C
  • CRange B
