Electromagnetic Spectrum Project

Introduction: In this project you work for a company that produces and sells electromagnetic waves (Waves-R-Us). Your job is to do extensive research on the company's products and then to design a catalog that will persuade customers to buy our product. You will also need to inform customers of the dangers of our waves.  

Task:  You must design a catalog that will persuade the customers of Waves-R-Us to buy your products. Your catalog must have 1 page for each wave (radio waves, microwaves, infrared rays, visible light, ultraviolet rays, X-rays, and gamma rays).  You should include the benefits of the particular wave as well as a picture that relates, Do not forget to include the risks of it in fine print. Your catalog should also have an introductory section that gives a general description of electromagnetic waves. Remember that you're trying to sell these products. Consider who your audience might be. Finally, your catalog should end with a bibliography that notes where your research and pictures came from.  

Items to consider when creating your catalog:
· Explain the type of frequency and wavelength of the waves and the location on the spectrum · Explain the practical applications of the waves
· Any negative factors or health precautions
· Future possibilities
· Pictures to accompany your explanations
