Does infrared radiation or ultraviolet radiation have wavelengths that are shorter than visible light?
My answer is ultraviolet radiation. I am really sure about this one. Am I correct?

  • Science -

    Yes, UV light has shorter wavelengths than visible light; IR light has longer wavelengths than visible light. UV light is more energetic, visible is next, IR has the smallest energy of the three.
