18.Scattering of light
1.Light is a form of energy, (optical energy) which helps us in seeing objects by its presence.
2.Light is an electromagnetic wave & travels in a straight line with the speed 3 × 108 m/s in vacuum & changes when it travels from one medium to another.
3.The wavelength (λ) of light changes when it goes from one medium to another.
4.The frequency (f) of the light wave remains the same in all media.
5.Light gets reflected back from polished surfaces, such as mirrors, polished metal surfaces, etc.
6.Light undergoes refraction (bending) when it travels from one transparent medium to another.
Source Of Light
The objects which emit (give) light are called luminous objects. It may be natural or man-made. Sun is a natural source of light and electric lamp, and oil lamp, etc. are man-made source of light.
