"Light" Essays and Research Papers


Visible light (commonly referred to simply as light) is electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye, and is responsible for the sense of sight. Visible light is usually defined as having a wavelength in the range of 400 nanometres (nm), or 400×10−9 m, to 700 nanometres – between the infrared, with longer wavelengths and the ultraviolet, with shorter wavelengths. These numbers do not represent the absolute limits of human vision, but the approximate range within which most people can...

Phenomena of Light

Dispersion Of White Light by a Glass Prism: When a beam of white light is passed through a glass prism, it is split up into a band of colours called spectrum. This is called dispersion of white light. The spectrum of white has the colours violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red (VIBGYOR). The red light bends the least and the violet light bends the most. A rainbow is a natural spectrum appearing in the sky after a rain shower. It is caused by the dispersion of sunlight by water...

Light Begins

"The light begins…the light ends" Dulce Maldonado Abstract: In this lab the students did two labs in which they learned the process of photosynthesis, which involves the use of light energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into sugar, oxygen, and other organic compounds. Oxygen is released as a product. This process is often summarized by the following reaction: 6CO2 + 12H2O ------> C6H12O6 + 6H2O + 6O2 The energy of photosynthesis comes from absorbed photons found in light and involves...

Light can be controlled and manipulated within certain spaces by adding light or having an absence of light.

Light within architecture can either be natural or synthetic, both creating a special experience within a room. In my research I will...

Reflection of Light

Of course, we live in an imperfect world and not all surfaces are smooth. When light strikes a rough surface, incoming light rays reflect at all sorts of angles because the surface is uneven. This scattering occurs in many of the objects we encounter every day. The surface of paper is a good example. You can see just how rough it is if you peer at it under a microscope. When light hits paper, the waves are reflected in all directions. This is what makes paper so incredibly useful -- you can read...

As grammar is the study of how language is structured, Carol Ann Duffy uses the structure of light to emphasize language’s potential and/or its limitations. Because light is shown through...

Introduction: Photosynthesis can be defined as light energy being converted into chemical energy, which is a very important process for plants and other organisms. Light can be described in terms of light quantity and light quality. Both of these have an affect on photosynthesis. The more light a plant absorbs the more the plant is able to photosynthesize. This light is absorbed though pigments which have specific interactions with certain light waves (colors). The goal of my first experiment...

Refraction of light in water Refraction is the change in direction of a wave due to a change in its transmission medium. Due to change of medium, the phase velocity of the wave is changed but its frequency remains constant. This is most commonly observed when a wave passes from one medium to another at any angle other than 90° or 0°. Refraction of light is the most commonly observed phenomenon, When light travels from air into water, it slows down, causing it to change direction slightly. This...

It was largely developed by Sir Isaac Newton. Newton's theory remained in force for more than 100 years and took precedence overHuygens' wave front theory, partly because of Newton’s great prestige.

The effects of Light Quality on the Rate of Photosynthesis Measure through Floating Spinach Disks

Abstract This study was undertaken to determine the relationship of different wavelengths of light and the rate of photosynthesis in spinach leafs. The rate of photosynthesis was measured every five min under light colors of white, green, red, blue and yellow under a light intensity of 2000 lux. The rate of photosynthesis was measured by the spinach disk method in which we replaced the air from the disks with sodium bicarbonate using a vacuum. Under photosynthesis, oxygen, a product of photosynthesis...

Properties of Light

Properties of Light Purpose: The ideal purpose of this lab activity is to investigate the relationship between the frequency of the light (color) and the energy produced by different colors of light. Other purposes of this experiment include calculating the proper current for each LED, measuring the evaporation rate of rubbing alcohol, and being able to discuss the outcome of the relationship in light energy and the color of the light producing the energy. Materials: Light Emitting Diodes...
