UV radiations are transmitted in the form of waves and can be described in terms of their amplitude or wavelength, which is measured in nanometers. 1 nm is equal to one millionth of a millimeter. Wavelength is the measure of length of one complete wave cycle.
The UV rays that reach the earth's surface have a wavelength that range from 290 to 400 nanometers. This is shorter than that of the visible light, which has a range from 400-700 nm. The shorter the wavelength of the radiation, the greater is the potential for harm.
