To Start the Tour NOW:
You'll be entering numbers that stand for wavelengths of light, in units called angstroms. An angstrom is a unit of length like inches or centimeters only much smaller. It is used to define light wavelengths. You start off by just picking any number (yup, any number that will fit in the box!) and putting the number you've chosen in the box below. Don't bother writing "angstroms." You can enter really small numbers like .000004 or really large numbers like 1,000,000,000.
What comes out when you put the number in? Well, just try it and find out. Have Fun!
