Question

Identify the electromagnetic wave whose photons has the highest energy .


A
X-ray
loader
B
ultraviolet light
loader
C
green light
loader
D
microwave
loader
E
radio wave
loader

Solution

The correct option is D X-ray
Energy of photon         $$E = h\nu$$                          $$\implies E \propto \nu$$
Increasing order of frequency :      
Radio wave < micro wave < green light < ultraviolet light < X-ray.
Thus frequency of X-ray is the highest.
$$\implies$$  Energy of X-ray photon is the highest.
