EM WAVES

ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES

PROJECT OBJECTIVE

To create a video in a 'Plain English' (Common Craft) style to explain electromagnetic waves.

CONTENTS
Your video will include:
1. Title referring to the Electromagnetic Spectrum: be creative!
2. 
A brief introduction about the 
Electromagnetic Spectrum, what is it, 
what are characteristics of electromagnetic 
waves, what are the seven waves that form 
the spectrum, their names and relative wavelength or frequency sizes (you do not 
have to write the exact numbers, just explain     in what order are they arranged).
3. TWO waves to discuss in depth
- Main characteristics of each type of wave, 
- Data: wavelength and frequency 
- What are the radiation (wave) sources?
- Uses or applications:how each of these 
types of radiation is used in our everyday 
lives or in certain industries.
