  1. Visible light is a very small part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

    Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "elctromagnetic spectrum vision" to get these possible sources:

    http://library.thinkquest.org/26111/spectrum.html
    http://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/bigeye.html

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
