  • Answer:

    The order would be: X-Rays, Visible Light, and Infrared Waves.

    X-Rays have the shortest wavelength out of all three, then Visible Light, and Infrared Waves have the longest wavelength of the three.

    Explanation:

    So basically, the LONGER the wavelength, the lower the energy. and the SHORTER the wavelength, the higher the energy. For example, Radio waves are the WEAKEST out of all the types of waves because they have the LONGEST wavelengths. Gamma Rays are the STRONGEST out of all the types of waves because they have the SHORTEST wavelengths. So Radio Waves have the lowest energy, and Gamma Rays have the highest energy.

    Here is a list of all the types of waves in order from shortest wavelength to longest wavelengths:

    Gamma Rays (Shortest Wavelengths, High Energy), then X-Rays would be the second strongest, then Ultraviolet waves, then Visible Light, then Infrared waves, then Microwaves, and lastly Radio Waves (Longest Wavelengths, Low Energy).

  • Answer:

    X rays < red visible < infrared  

    Explanation:

    According to your picture, gamma rays have the shortest wavelength and radio waves have the longest.

    Thus. the order of wavelengths is

    X rays < red visible < infrared
