  2. << The only type of electromagnetic radiation that is actually considered light is visible light. >>

    It depends upon whom you are talking to. The eye can see a bit below 400 nm and a bit above 700 nm, but with rapidly decreasing sensitivity. The fact that "light" is a one-syllable word and "electromagnetic radiation" has ten syllables makes "light" a convenient substitute for other wavelength regions in casual conversation or when talking about the "speed of light".

    All electromagnetic wavelengths travel at the speed of light only in a vacuum.
