# what wave has the highest energy • ### What electromagnetic wave has the most energy?

• What electromagnetic waves have the most energy? Gamma ( 纬) radiation has the greatest energy. This is because 纬 -radiation has the highest frequency.

• ### How do you show which waves are the most energetic?

• But here is a way to show which waves are the most energetic: The energy of a wave is given by the equation: #E=hf#. #h#=Planck’s constant #(6,626110^(-34) Js^-1)#. #f#=frequency of the wave. Hence we can see that the energy of a wave is proportional to its frequency, as the other term is a constant.

• ### How is energy of a wave related to its frequency?

• The energy of a wave is given by the equation: Hence we can see that the energy of a wave is proportional to its frequency, as the other term is a constant. Then we can ask ourselves, which waves are the ones with the highest frequency?

• ### Which type of radiation has the greatest energy?

• Jun 2, 2015. Gamma(#gamma#) radiation has the greatest energy. This is because #gamma# -radiation has the highest frequency.
