What physical quantity is the same for X-rays of wavelength 10–10 m, red light of wavelength 6800 Å and radio waves of wavelength 500m?

Answer :

The physical quantity which is same for X-rays of wavelength 10–10 m, red light of wavelength 6800 Å and radio waves of wavelength 500 m is the speed of light in vacuum which is equal to 3×108 m/s. The speed of light in vacuum remains same for all wavelengths. This is because speed of light is independent of wavelength in the vacuum.
