Electromagnetic radiation is an energy that is known as light. so electromagnetic radiation will have the same speed as the speed of light which is 3 x 10^8 m/s. so the distance it travel at 55 x 10^-6 s is:D = ( 3 x 10^8 m/s ) ( 55 x 10^-6 s )D = 16500 m

Explanation:

The distance traveled by electromagnetic radiation is given by:

where

v is the speed of the radiation

t is the time elapsed

Electromagnetic radiation travels at the speed of light, which is equal to:

The time elapsed in this problem is

Substituting into the equation, we find

which corresponds to

Explanation:

wavelength, λ = 0.86 nm = 0.86 x 106-9 m

velocity of electromagnetic radiation is same as the speed of light

v = 3 x 10^8 m/s

Let the frequency is f.

The relation between the wave velocity, wavelength and frequency.

v = f x λ

The another radiation has frequency, f = 6.4 x 10^11 hz

Let the wavelength is λ.

The relation between frequency, wavelength and the velocity is given by

v = f x λ

λ = 4.6875 x 10^-4 m = 0.46875 mm

The range of frequency for the X rays lies between 10^16 Hz to 10^19 Hz.

The above radiations do not lie between this range so they are not detected by the X ray detector.

The distance traveled by the radiation in the time is d .

You are watching: What distance does electromagnetic radiation travel in 55.0 μs ?

distance = speed x time

d = 3 x 10^8 x 0.38 x 10^-12 = 1.14 x 10^-4 m

Given:

Time taken by the electromagnetic radiation, t = 33 fs

To determine:

The distance (d) travelled

Explanation:

Time taken = 33 fs (femtosecond)

1 fs = 10⁻¹⁵ s

Thus t = 33 *10⁻¹⁵ s

Speed of electromagnetic radiation = 3*10⁸ m/s

Distance = Speed * Time = 3*10⁸ ms-1 * 33*10⁻¹⁵ s = 99*10⁻⁷ m

Ans: distance traveled = 9.9*10⁻⁶ m

The speed of light (electromagnetic radiation) is equal to 299 792 458m / s or 3x10^8 m/s in scientific notation.

So with this information, we could now look for thedistance. Solution:

Take note that μs means microseconds.

Speed of light * microseconds travelled * actual amount of microseconds(3x10^8 m/s) (45.0 μs) (1x10^-6 s/μs) = 13,500 m.

Distance is given by speed × timeSpeed of light is 3 × 10^8 m/sThe time of travel = 0.48 × 10^-12 or 4.8 × 10^-13 secondsTherefore; the distance = (0.48 × 10^-13 )× (3 ×10^8 )  = 1.44 × 10^-4 m
