Visible light waves * comic*
This storyboard does not have a description.
Introducing........ Visible light waves! I will be explaining how visible light travels and how it impacts our everyday lives!
Our lives would be very difficult if we didn't have visible light. It allows us to see colors and the shapes of our surroundings! To much of the light can cause damage to the retina.
Now let me explain how this wave travels!
Visible light travels through a prism, like below.
Next, the different wavelengths separate into different colors, which are in the order of the rainbow. Red has the longest wavelength and violet has the shortest wavelength.
Cones in our eyes receive these tiny waves and it is recognized as visible light. We see things because our eyes see the reflection of the light off the objects around us. The color of an object is in color because the color of light has reflected.
Thanks for reading about visible light waves, now you know how they travel and how the impact our everyday lives.
