Radiation Quizzes & Trivia

Electromagnetic waves travel through space in a process called radiation. The term comes from the radiating motion, where the waves travel outward in all directions. Did you know that there are three less common forms of radiation? They are called chaotic, coherent, and parallel. Can you name the machine that is used to measure radiation levels?
 
Do you know the name of the small meter that people wear to measure personal exposure? Did you know that most of the time when we talk about radiation, we mean ionizing radiation? It can cause cancer and many other problems. What most people don’t realize is that non-ionizing radiation can be harmful as well, although not as much. If you think you know a lot about radiation and other physics topics, then try out our quizzes and see how smart you really are!

    The temperature of stars in the universe varies with the type of star and the age of the star among other things. By looking at the shape of the spectrum of light emitted by a star, we can tell something about its average surface temperature.  If we observe a star's spectrum and find that the peak power occurs at the border between red and infrared light, what is the approximate surface temperature of the star? (in degrees C)
