Photons do travel in a straight path. To a person observing the photons though they will appear to be curved because of the gravitational field.
Light is a particle that acts like a wave and therefore does not travel in a straight line. light has nothing to do with gravity, the fourth dimension or the 'fabric' of space time.
As particles photons travel in a straight line unless they are diverted by reflection, refraction, or a magnetic or gravitational field. Note that when it comes to gravity it can also be represented that the light continues in a straight line - but the space it travels through is curved so its path appears curved to the outside observer.
no it does not
Photons travel the cosmic space down to the Earth.
Light travels in waves, as in a straight line in waves and photons go inside them
No it travels as a wave. Improvement: No actually, it DOES travel in a straight line :)
No. All photons travel at the speed of light.
The light leaving a flashlight when it is turned on and then off will tend to move in a straight line. The problem is that there is air that the light will have to move through. The air will scatter or even absorb the photons. Eventually all the photons will be scattered and absorbed. If the experiment was conducted in outer space, the photons would travel a great distance as there is little in the way of particles to scatter the photons. Here on earth, the atmosphere would absorb the energy as there is relatively little of it released from the flashlight.
it does not
soundyes sound travel in a straight line What Sound Looks LikeThe answer is yes and no. If you drew a line from the source of a sound to where you were when you perceived it, it would appear to be a line.However, upon further analysis (the depth of that depending on the sound you are looking at), you would see that it actually travels in a wave form, having an amplitude, frequency, wave length, period and speed.Does sound travel in a straight line?No, sound travels in a wave, therefore it does not travel in a straight line. It does travel in a line, just not a staright one
Light travels in a straight line.
No. Light is a particle that acts like a wave and therefore is never in a straight line
Energy does always travel in a straight line. It is true that close to a massive object the energy may 'appear' to bend, but this is simply because mass bends space, a straight line through curved space is still a straight line. So the reason that energy travels in a straight line is because a straight line is actually defined as the path taken by a beam of light!
nothing they travel in straight line
Actually it doesn't.
the travel in straight lines because of the atomsphe
the photons travel outward from a light source in all directions.
