Aspects of Light

The wavelength of light is calculated in really tiny measurements called nanometers. One nanometer is 1 billionth of a meter!

Video Time:

An Overview of Light:Light is a result of energy being transmitted from a matter. The human eyes have the ability to sense the brightness and color of the light photons. To see an object, the object must deflect or emit photons towards the eye.

The properties of light are speed, frequency, and wavelength.

Q: What are the Properties Of Light?

The frequency of a light is its color. It can range from 430 trillion Hz, which we see as red, to 750 trillion Hz, which is violet.

Q: What does the frequency of light even mean?

The speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s, which is over 1 million times as fast as the speed of sound at sea level!

Q: How fast is light?

Q: What is the wavelength of light?

To give you an idea of how small a nanometer is, one sheet of paper is about 100,000 nanometers thick!

Aspects of Light

The longer the wavelength of light, the less frequency it has.

Fast as lightning!

Enjoy!
