Hey, brother! Will you
please help me and my
friends to evolve fast?
Sure! But you
have to explore
first the concept
of EM Waves!
Accelerating electrons produce electromagnetic waves. These waves are a
combination of electric and magnetic fields. A changing magnetic field produces
an electric field and a changing electric field produces a magnetic field. Both the
electric field and the magnetic field oscillate perpendicular to each other and to
the direction of the propagating wave.
All electromagnetic waves can travel
through a medium but unlike other types
of waves, they can also travel in vacuum.
They travel in vacuum at a speed of
m/s and denoted as c, the speed
of light. The wave speed, frequency, and
wavelength are related by the following
V = f
Where: v is the wave speed = c = 3 x 108
is the wavelength (in meters)
f is the frequency (in Hertz)
Here are some
notes for you!
Good luck in your
Help SQUIRTLE to become stronger and achieve Mega Evolution to
become BLASTOISE by identifying whether the statements on some
staircases is TRUE or FALSE.
Electromagnetic waves can also
transfer energy in a vacuum.
A wave is a disturbance that
The electric field and the
magnetic field oscillate parallel
to each other
As wavelength decreases, the
frequency of wave also decreases
Most EM Waves are invisible and
Wave speed can be
calculated from the
frequency (f) and
wavelength ( λ) using
v = λf
where : v—wave speed
= 3 x 108
f—frequency (in Hz)
PICHU requires 10 megavolts to transform fully into RAICHU. Help
him transform by solving the two problems below. The first
question was already solved as an example.
What is the frequency of radio waves with
wavelength of 20 m?
Given: v = c = 3 x 108 m/s v = c = λf
λ = 20 m f = c/λ
f = ? = 3 x 108 m/s
f = 1.5 x 107 Hz
What is the frequency of
light waves with
wavelength of 5 x 10-7 m?
What is the
wavelength of ultraviolet
ray if it’s frequency is
4 x 1016 Hz?
Analyze the figure below that summarizes the characteristics of
different EM waves and help CHARMANDER to evolve by doing the
activity on the next page.
KEEP THE FIRE BURNING by helping CHARMANDER to arrange the EM waves in correct order in
terms of increasing WAVELENGTH and decreasing FREQUENCY. A successful task will make him
evolve into CHARIZARD.
Be careful Bro! A mistake
can put out the fire
because it splashes water.

all the statements correctly.
1. Electromagnetic wave is considered as a
2. The longer the wavelength
of the wave, the higher it’s
3. Gamma rays have the highest
frequency among all EM waves.

Showcase your talent in expressing what you had learned by
doing one of the tasks below.
Electromagnetic waves are transverse
waves that can propagate with or without a
All EM waves can travel as fast as
3 x 108 m/s in a vacuum. This is the same with
the speed of light, c.
The longer the wavelength of a wave, the
lower its’ frequency; and the shorter the
wavelength of a wave, the higher its’ frequency.
Electromagnetic Spectrum is a
continuum of different EM waves that are
arranged based on frequency and wavelength.
EM Spectrum consists of radio wave,
microwave, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet
ray, x-ray, and gamma ray.
