Light

Reflection, Refraction, and Beams

Reflection

When light hits a reflective surface, it bounces off in the other direction. This is because the surface is shiny even though it is opaque,something solid that you cannot see through.

Absorbtion

Light is mostly absorbed in opaque objects such as blocks, but a little is absorbed in translucent objects such as curtains. None is absorbed in transparent objects,such as glass.

Key words

Light is everywhere!

Refraction

When light passes through certain things, such as water it refracts or bends
