Visible Light

Physics Period 3

Visible light is wavelengths that are visible to most human eyes

The wavelength range is corresponded to a wavelength range of 400 - 700 nanometers

The velocity in a vacuum is 299792458 metres per second (approximately 3.00×10

8

m/s)

An interesting fact for visible light is there the only electromagnetic wave we can see

An interesting fact for visible light is that our eyes have these things called cones causing us to see different colors.

Visible Light Summary

In the video above it explains why rainbows are existing. Different color light is bent by different amounts. White light is a mixture of many colors. \When the sun shines through a spray of water it acts as a prism.

Visible Light in life ..

Visible light is used in everyday life

Visible light is used to see the color that is reflected off the sun



Positive health impacts - sunlight gives us vitamin D

Positive health impacts - the sunlight gives us warmth

Negative health impacts - to much sunlight can cause skin cancer

Negative health impacts - to much radiation from the sun can cause us to burn

Visible Light - Mission:Science

Our eyes are tuned to wavelength in a narrow band of spectrum. Visible light travels through a prism. They separate causing us to see different colors. Specifically the colors of the rainbow.
