# what wave has the highest energy Gamma rays

• ### 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.

• ### 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.

• ### Which electromagnetic wave has the shortest wavelength?

• Now if we use this diagram of the EM-spectrum which show wavelengths: We can thus conclude that the waves that have the shortest wavelength are gamma rays, and thus they are the most energetic because they must also have the highest frequency.
