Light Interactions WWMS 7th Grade Science
Law of Reflection • The angle of incident equals the angle of reflection
Regular Reflection • When light is reflected of off a smooth surface. • Your eyes will see a reflection on the surface.
Diffused Reflection • The reflection of light from an uneven surface. • Your eyes will not see a reflection on the surface
Refraction • The bending of light as it goes through a different medium and changes speeds.
Diffraction • The bending of light around barriers • The colors on the spider web are due to the diffraction of light.
Light Interference • The iridescence of the Peacock’s feathers is caused by light interference from many layers of reflected light.
3-Types of light interactions with matter • As light passes through this window it can be: 1. Absorbed- soaked up 2. Transmitted- pass through 3. Reflected- bounce off
3 Types of Matter 1. Transparent- light is transmitted in strait lines 2. Translucent- light is transmitted in scattered patterns 3. Opaque- all the light is absorbed.
Color Addition • The 3 primary colors of light are: 1. Red 2. Green 3. Blue When combined they form white.
Color Subtraction • The primary pigment colors are: 1. Magenta 2. Cyan 3. Yellow • • They can combine to produce any other color. When mixed they create black
Interactive Color Mixers • Link to color addition • Link to color subtraction
