1.Visible light is one form of electromagnetic radiation, wavelengths from 0.4- 0.75 m. 2. Visible light contains color bands range from violet through red (as fig 1). 3. Ultraviolet region cover range from 0.01-0.4 m, while infrared region from 0.75-1000 m. Light and electromagnetic spectrum
1 . Light has the form of waves and to consist of particles called photons. 2. Photons have the fundamental equation: h :Planck'sconstant(6.62x10-34J.s); c:the speed of light in vacuum (3.00x108m/s); :wavelength v:frequency 3.These equations allow us to consider the photon as a tide of energy, E or as a wave with a specific wavelength and frequency.

1. When light photons are transmitted through a transparent material, they lose some of their energy, and as a result, the speed of light is reduced and the beam of light changes direction. 2. Fig 2 show how a beam of light entering from air is slowed when entering a denser medium such as window glass. 3. Thus, the incident angle for the light beam is greater than refracted angle in this case Refraction of light: index of refraction Fig 2: Refraction of light beam as it is transmitted from a vacuum (air) through soda-lime-silica glass.
The relative velocity of light passing through a medium is expressed by the optical property called the index of refraction n. The n value of a medium is defined as the ratio of the velocity of light in vacuum, c, to the velocity of light in the medium considered, u.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
