reflection,absorption ,refraction and scattering
The throwing back by a body or surface of light,heat ,or sound without absorbing it.
In physics, absorption of electromagnetic radiation is the way in which the energy of a photon is taken up by matter, typically the electrons of an atom.
The fact or phenomenon of light, radio waves, etc., being deflected in passing obliquely through the interface between one medium and another or through a medium of varying density.
The process in which electromagnetic radiation or particles are deflected or diffused.
Statements comparing and contrasting
Reflection is throwing back not absorbing it like a mirror.Absorption is taking in the energy reflection does not but they both however is electromagnetic radiations.Refraction and scattering particles are deflected or diffused refraction deflects just as scattering through meduim
A real world example for reflection
Look in the mirror and the positioning of objects in the mirror you will see yourself or the object his self.
Real world example of absorption
wood is like a example.
real world example of refraction
diamond at a greater angle or water lesser angle
real world example of scattering
The earth that is why the sky is blue.
