What Is an Angstrom?
Electromagnetic radiation travels in
waves. Scientists use the length of the wave (the distance between peaks)
to define the energy of the radiation. Astronomers measure this length in
"angstroms," a unit of measure equal to 1 hundred-millionth of a
centimeter. It's a convenient shorthand to avoid writing lots of zeroes
when talking about the wavelengths of light. In everyday terms, a sheet of
paper is approximately 1,000,000 angstroms thick. Visible light covers the
range from 4,000 to 8,000 angstroms.
The calibrate button on the
first converter is used to calibrate all the different measurements
