See I being at some corner of the world am able to answer the question posted by some one at some other corner. This is technology!
Same way a tedious and an urgent surgery could be done at some corner being directed by an expert in some other corner.
You could collect it in a container and cool it down and measure the quantity of water. Or you could hold a thermometer so that its bulb is in the steam to measure its temperature.
It is the ratio of the density of a material to that of water at 4 degrees Celsius.
It's the same as the number of kilograms per liter.
'Specific gravity' has, for some time, now, been called relative density.
Diffraction is the bending of waves around an obstacle, while interference is the meeting of two waves. For instance, diffraction is what results from a pinhole blocking a wave source, the wave spreads out from that one point. This effect is what creates shadows, regions where the light source is blocked but it is not completely dark. Interference, however, results from two waves colliding with one another undergoing constructive and destructive interference, as in two chords being played. I think the confusion concerning these two different phenomena is the fact that two pinholes, two diffraction sources, results in interference of two sources, which is what the diffraction grating is, which creates the characteristic bands of light and dark interference patterns.
Good question-- See the link. Roughly the visible region is 300 nm to 650. so that's 350 nm total. The electromagnetic spectrum goes from 10 Megameters to 1 picometer. So the percentage of the spectrum occupied by visible light is tiny, just 3.5 X 10-9 divided by 10^19 ---- So that's 3.5x10-26 %. So many zeros....! Yikes. Gamma rays (picometers) (10-12)

Extremely low frequency (Radio) 10 Megameters (10 X 106) Actually the electromagnetic spectrum goes off as far as you want in both directions - there are electromagnetic waves with wavelengths as small as you want, and others as large as you want. So really the answer is 0%. If you meant to ask what percentage of the electromagnetic energy from the sun is visible (for instance) then the answer is nonzero, but I don't know what it is. If you meant to ask a question of the kind that has been answered above (what percentage of the spectrum from 10 megameters to 1 picometer is visible) then the question is not well defined: the answer depends not just on the bounds but on what scale you use. I think the answer above is mistaken. If you go by wavelength, my answer (to that question) would be: 3.5x10-7 divided by 107, which is 3.5x10-14 or 3.5x10-12%. If you use frequency instead of wavelength: The bounds on wavelength given above correspond to 30 Hz to 3x1020Hz, with visible light between 4.6x1014Hz and 1015Hz. Then, the answer would be 5.4x1014 divided by 3x1020, which is 1.8x10-6, or 0.00018%. If you want to use a logarithmic scale, which is more sensible in some ways, then the answer is much higher. I don't know exactly because I don't have a calculator with logarithms here, but it's around 1.5%.
