Semi retired old time computer nerd who started programming on a Commodore Pet.

Since I'm also active in the Physics forum I should add that I started as a theoretical chemist, moved into solid state photochemistry and finally worked in industry as a colloid scientist. I only became a full time computer nerd in 1997.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it has been answered, and the answer accepted, on the Math SE.

comment How to remember the Electromagnetic Spectrum?
@GeoffRyan: right, but this is the Physics SE and we expect answers here to be accurate, not to follow the eccentricities of some textbook.

comment How to remember the Electromagnetic Spectrum?
@hft: Radio waves extend down to 60Hz and considerably lower. I have never heard of "electron waves" - or at least not as an expression to describe long wavelength EM.

@Klosew: the electron density shifts around in exactly the same way as the energy density.
