Ultraviolet Light UV Environmental factor

«Ultraviolet (UV) designates a band of the electromagnetic spectrum with wavelength from 10 nm to 400 nm, shorter than that of visible light but longer than X-rays. UV radiation is present in sunlight, and contributes about 10% of the total output of the Sun. It is also produced by electric arcs and specialized light, such as mercury-vapor lamps, tanning lamps, and black light. Although long-wavelength ultraviolet is not considered an ionizing radiation because its photons lack the energy to ionizeatoms, it can cause chemical reactions and causes many substances to glow or fluoresce. Consequently, the chemical and biological effects of UV are greater than simple heating effects, and many practical applications of UV radiation derive from its interactions with organic molecules.
