Welcome to our light page.
This page is the introduction to light. There are two main aspects of
light, the electromagnetic spectrum and light's properties.
The spectrum of light
The electromagnetic spectrum does
not only include the light we see, but also harmful gamma
rays at high frequencies to radio waves at very low
frequencies. Discovered in the 19th and 20th centuries, it
proved that many physical phenomemnon (such as gamma rays
and light) were just seperate or just overlapping regions
wthin a spectrum of waves. In conclusion, all of these phenomena can be
associated within the elctromagnetic spectrum.
The visible spectrum is very small

Properties of light
Light tends to change its characteristics as it encounters substances. Some of these changes are caused by the wave properties of light.
