Electromagnetic Spectrum Wavelengths

  1. Feb 15, 2010 #1
    The question I have is a bit difficult to express.

    The foundation of my question. Within the electromagnetic spectrum there is the visible spectrum. Broken down that has our individual colors that we see.

    Do all portions of the electromagnetic spectrum have special properties such as this that are not as widely addressed or is this a special group classification because as humans we can see this spectrum?

    Thanks

    It's only special because we can see it. The only thing that changes across the electromagnetic spectrum is the frequency/wavelength.
