Multiwavelength Astronomy - Solution

  1. Design a bar graph showing the 6 types of radiation discussed and the temperature (in Kelvin) radiated by each.
    Bar graph showing Types of Radiation vs. Kelvin Temperature

  2. Devise a chart to show the typical sources for each type of radiation.

    Typical Sources of Radiation
    Gamma Rays X-Rays Ultraviolet Visible Infrared Radio
    black holes gas very hot stars planets
    cool clouds of dust and gas
    magnetic fields
