I know what the visible spectrum is ROYGBIV, but do we need to know that gamma rays have the smallest wavelength, then X rays, then UV rays, visible spectrum, etc. etc.?

Haven't taken my DAT yet, but I suppose what you're addressing here relates more to the physics stuff, which should not be of a concern for the DAT.

Yea, you would need to know the order of frequency from lowest to highest as well as the wavelength longest to shortest. It will be part of G.chem. I mean, look at it like this, its better to be safe than sorry!

DEFINATELY!!! I actually got a question asking me to rate them in increasing energy/wavelength when I took the DAT in September 2006.

I know the wavelengths in the visible spectrum, but are you guys serious that I would need to know all the other wavelengths of the electromagnetic radiation???
