The following questions pertain to the electromagnetic spectrum and the duality of light (wave and
particle). Use your notes to answer each question.
1. The relationship between frequency and wavelength is ( direct / inverse ).
2. The relationship between frequency and energy is ( direct / inverse ).
3. The relationship between wavelength and energy is ( direct / inverse ).
4. Two light waves travel at the same speed. Wave A has four times the frequency of wave B. How does the
wavelength of wave A compare with the wavelength of wave B? _____________________________________________
5. Photon A has twice the frequency of photon B. How do the energies of the two photons compare?
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
6. A Photon has a frequency of 2 x 1014 Hz. If the energy of the photon triples, what is the new frequency?
