# Does wavelength decrease as energy increases?

## Does wavelength decrease as energy increases?

Energy of radiation is inversely proportional to its wavelength. That is, when the wavelength increases, energy decreases and when the wavelength decreases, energy increases.

## What happens to the energy of a photon as wavelength decreases?

As the wavelength decreases and frequency increases, the energy increases – for example X-rays and gamma radiation.

Why is the wavelength increases?

Waves can be measured using wavelength and frequency. The distance from one crest to the next is called a wavelength (λ). The number of complete wavelengths in a given unit of time is called frequency (f). As a wavelength increases in size, its frequency and energy (E) decrease.

Does wavelength affect light speed?

The wavelength of a wave does not affect the speed at which the wave travels. Both Wave C and Wave D travel at the same speed. The speed of a wave is only altered by alterations in the properties of the medium through which it travels.

### What happens when the wavelength of a wave increases?

As a wavelength increases in size, its frequency and energy (E) decrease. From these equations you may realize that as the frequency increases, the wavelength gets shorter. Mechanical and electromagnetic waves with long wavelengths contain less energy than waves with short wavelengths.

### What is relation between frequency and current?

Frequency is the rate at which current changes direction per second. It is measured in hertz (Hz), an international unit of measure where 1 hertz is equal to 1 cycle per second. Hertz (Hz) = One hertz is equal to one cycle per second. Cycle = One complete wave of alternating current or voltage.

Which Colour light travels fastest?

red color
So according to equation (1) velocity of light is directly proportional to the wavelength. So violet color has minimum velocity of light and red color has maximum velocity of light when it passes through the glass. Hence the red color of white light travels fastest in the glass.

Which Colour has highest speed in vacuum?

The colour violet has the highest velocity in vacuum…
