    Light I | | INTRODUCTION | Light‚ form of energy visible to the human eye that is radiated by moving charged particles. Light from the Sun provides the energy needed for plant growth. Plants convert the energy in sunlight into storable chemical form through a process called photosynthesis. Petroleum‚ coal‚ and natural gas are the remains of plants that lived millions of years ago‚ and the energy these fuels release when they burn is the chemical energy converted from sunlight. When animals digest

    Light is everywhere in our world. We need it to see: it carries information from the world to our eyes and brains. Seeing colors and shapes is second nature to us‚ yet light is a perplexing phenomenon when we study it more closely. Here are some things to think about: Our brains and eyes act together to make extraordinary things happen in perception. Movies are sequences of still pictures. Magazine pictures are arrays of dots. Light acts like particles—little light bullets—that stream from the

    the objects picture a description of what happens when light ray is shone on it. The source of light is a light bulb from a ray box. If a beam of light of one colour is shone through a prism‚ the direction of the beam is changed by the prism. This is because the two faces of the prism through which the light passes are not parallel. If white light is used the prism splits up the light into a series of colours. This shows that white light is actually made up of many other colours - a fact first

    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

  • Polarizing Light

    Polarized light are those that are vibrating in one direction- in a single plane such as up and down. Those that are vibrating in more than one direction -- in more than one plane such as both up/down and left/right -- are called unpolarized light. Generally‚ unpolarized light can be considered to be vibrating in a vertical and a horizontal plane. To polarize light‚ one can transmit the light through a polariod filter which will only allow light of single polarity to pass. The resulting light will be

  • Grammar of Light

    of Language Light can take on many different forms‚ some more prominent than others. This concept is explored through the poem‚ “The Grammar of Light”‚ written by Carol Ann Duffy. The title itself is a metaphor as the term ‘light’ is being compared to language and how it can be structured in several different ways. 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

  • Light and Photosynthesis

    Students are not expected to know the answers to the Prior Knowledge Questions.] • To survive‚ what gas do we need to breathe in? Oxygen • Where is this gas produced? In plants Gizmo Warm-up During photosynthesis‚ plants use the energy of light to produce glucose (C6H12O6) from carbon dioxide (CO2)‚ and water (H2O). Glucose is a simple sugar that plants use for energy and as a building block for larger molecules. A by-product of photosynthesis is oxygen. Plants use some of the oxygen they
