Cosmic Rays
Ivelina Kioutchoukova
Period 3 Wave Presentations Key Facts What is the wavelength and frequency?
The wavelength is <8X-10M and >1X1019Hz frequency. Universe to us. Where is this type of radiation located on the electromagnetic spectrum in relation to other kinds of radiation?
Cosmic Rays are not located on the electromagnetic spectrum, due to the fact they are not classified as 'radiation' they are high-energy charged particles that travel through space at the speed of light. They would be past the gamma rays at the upper end of the electromagnetic spectrum. What properties of the wave determine why it is found within this area of the spectrum?
Cosmic rays are not on the electromagnetic spectrum because instead of radiation, they are high-energy charged particles. Photos of Electromagnetic Spectrum Applications How is it used or found in our everyday lives or in certain industries?
Cosmic Rays are found in our everyday lives or in certain industries, such as NASA, who travels out into space to see and explore, and on their way to exploring the Universe's mysteries, they happen to run into these 'Cosmic Rays' which could threaten their lives.
Another use would be that they are in the universe, which we live in, so it's n our everyday lives. They are not rays, but in fact, high energy subatomic particles of cosmic origin that continually impressed Earth. As part of cosmic rays, there are electrons, protons, and the complete nuclei of all the elements. They present the valuable component of the energy balance in our solar system. Interesting Facts Some cosmic rays come from the sun, whereas other come from the far depths of the universe. Most cosmic rays decay long before reaching Earth's surface. No cosmic ray within energy less than 1 GeV can make it through the atmosphere at all. Advantages of Cosmic Rays Disadvantages Some advantages of cosmic rays are that they decay long before reaching Earth's surface. No cosmic ray within energy less than 1 GeV can make it through the atmosphere at all. Some stable components of atoms same as earth, such as protons, electrons, ect. For 1 Sievert of cosmic rays, you could get nausea, and for 2-6 Sieverts, Cosmic rays could cause death. The higher you are in the atmosphere, the more likely you are to experience illness. About 30 cosmic rays fly throughout you body every second. They produce showers of secondary particles that even Earth's surface. Cosmic Rays "seed" clouds, and have been more reportings now that the past 50 years of cosmic rays, they could help in climate change, by producing clouds. Can harm astronauts, flight attendants, and pilots who are not experienced enough. Giant affect on humans, due to radiation, mostly people exposed to cosmic rays, such as astronauts. Apollo astronauts reported seeing flashes of light in their eyes, which could have been cosmic rays. Bibliography http://delloyd.50megs.com/moreinfo/spectrum.html
