        ASPIRE Lab | Wavelength

        Learn about wavelength in this interactive activity adapted from the University of Utah’s ASPIRE Lab. Use a ruler to measure the distance from crest to crest on a simple waveform to find its wavelength. Then, investigate how wavelength varies across the electromagnetic spectrum and how the colors of visible light are related to wavelength.

        This media asset was adapted from Acoustics Animations: Dr. Dan Russell, Kettering University, and University of Utah’s ASPIRE Lab.
