Answers will vary. X-rays, with high energy and short wavelength, are
used to produce images of the body’s interior; infrared, with wavelengths
longer than red light, can be used to keep food warm; microwaves, with still
longer wavelengths, can used for cooking and for communication; radio
waves, with the longest wavelengths, can be used in communication and

31. Answer
synthesis
P.4.f
4.1.4
When you walk across the room and pause to greet people along the
way, you are like light passing through glass, pausing along the way to
interact with atoms. Your average speed across the room is lower when
interactions occur, much like the speed of light is less in glass than in a
vacuum. How this is different is that in the case of walking across the room,
you begin the walk and you end it. There is only one you. But in the case of
light through glass, the photon that first interacts with the glass is not the
photon that emerges through the glass. There is a chain of different but
identical photons cascading through the glass.
32. Answer

4.1.4
(a) (Warmest) Black, Red, Yellow, Clear, White (Coolest)
(b) Black container absorbed all colors of the visible spectrum
ROYGBIV. No colors were reflected or transmitted from it. The
light caused the atoms to move more rapidly, thus increasing the
average kinetic energy of the particles.
The Red container was the second warmest because it reflected
only one wavelength of light(red) and absorbed the six other colors
(OYGBIV). With 14% fewer waves of light to interact with the
water molecules, its temperature did not rise as much as the black
container.
The Yellow container was third because it reflects red and green
wavelengths and absorbs only 4 colors (OBIV). It has 28% fewer
waves of light interacting with the water molecules, its temperature
did not rise as much as the red container.
The Clear container allowed the light to pass through or be
transmitted. No wavelengths were reflected or absorbed, but the
light did interact with the water as it passed through causing the
temperature to rise slightly.
The White container reflected all of the wavelengths of light and
allowed none to be transmitted or absorbed. It was the coolest or
had the lowest temperature of all the containers.
