    Types of Electromagnetic Radiations–Non-Ionizing Radiations

    Types of Electromagnetic Radiations–Non-Ionizing Radiations NON-IONIZING RADIATIONS The energy of non-ionizing radiation is less and does not produce charged ions when passing through the matter.. Examples of non-ionizing radiations 1. Radio waves are produced by (i) Lightning (ii) Astronomical objects Radio waves can be generated artificially which are used (i) For fixed and mobile radio […]

    Types of Electromagnetic Radiations-Ionizing Radiations

    Types of Electromagnetic Radiations-Ionizing Radiations Types of Electromagnetic Radiations   Two types, Ionizing and Non-ionizing IONIZING RADIATIONS Radiation with sufficiently high energy are ionizing radiations.  Ionizing radiation are Alpha particles, beta particles, gamma rays, and X-rays. Effects of ionizing radiations: Both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation can be (a)    harmful to organisms (b)   Can result in […]
