The axon of the neuron, the nerve cell of the human body, has a diameter of approximately 0.2 microns. how long does it take for EM waves to pass through the axon? (Assuming EM can pass through it.)
How many cycles of EM waves occur during the above passage, using 1.50 x 10 to the 23rd power Hz.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com November 24, 2022, 11:44 am ad1c9bdddf
Here the distance travelled by the wave is 0.2 microns
= 0.2*10^-6 meter
We know that Velocity of EM wave, C = 3*10^8 m/s
Thus the time taken ...
The answer is given step-by-step equationally.
