Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What song is Prof. Quent thinking of with this paraphrase? Slightly Foggy Color Falling between 4500 and 4950 Angstroms

Answer: Misty Blue

Nowadays, wavelength is measured in nanometers, abbreviated nm. Pure blue is 470 nm. But when Prof. Quent and I were young, wavelength was measured in angstroms.

Engelbert recorded "Misty Blue" by Bob Montgomery in 1967. It was issued on the UK release of his first album, "Release Me" and on the US release of his second album, "The Last Waltz." To confuse matters still further, both of these albums came out in the same year, 1967.
