Answer d, or yellow light, is second in the list.
Work Step by Step
To figure out the answer to this, we must first analyze the question, which is asking us to list the types of electromagnetic radiation in order of increasing wavelength. Therefore, we can refer to Figure 6.4, on page 215. Using the information given by the figure, we can determine that yellow has a shorter wavelength than red, the FM radio waves, and the AM radio waves. However, seeing that the visible spectrum’s wavelength is longer than gamma rays’ wavelength, we can determine that the yellow light produced by the streetlight is 2nd in our list.
