    electromagnetic -

    The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.[1] The "electromagnetic spectrum" of an object is the characteristic distribution of electromagnetic radiation emitted or absorbed by that particular object.

    frequency -

    Familiar concepts associated with a frequency are colors, musical notes, radio/TV channels, and even the regular rotation of the earth.

    A source of light can have many colors mixed together and in different amounts (intensities). A rainbow, or prism, sends the different frequencies in different directions, making them individually visible at different angles.

    The electromagnetic spectrum is things like Gamma, UV, Infra Red, radio, and microwaves, while Frequency spectrum's are the visible light, like the rainbow.

    there is the electromagnetic spectrum; then there are the somewhat some spectra linked with each and all the somewhat some forms of electromagnetic radiations and debris. as an occasion radio waves, microwaves, seen easy, ultraviolet easy, Xrays, etc. Then there are sound waves and their spectra linked with, as an occasion ultrasound, audible sound, and infrasound. All spectra are linked with radiant / propagated capability. There are different forms of radiant capability that are no longer yet acknowledged by skill of present day sciences and that i've got written a e book approximately this "new" style of capability.
