light spreads out in straight lines. i hope i cleared your misunderstanding.
Light travels in a straight line.
No. Light is a particle that acts like a wave and therefore is never in a straight line
In a straight line. At the speed of light.
No it travels as a wave. Improvement: No actually, it DOES travel in a straight line :)
nothing they travel in straight line
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.
light travels in a straight line because it can only be bend by reflective objects.
one of the properties of light is that light travel at straight line
the light travels in a straight line becauise it is going straight on to you object what you are looking at.
There are more things for the light waves to bounce off of in water, so light can not travel in a straight line or as far.
Light will travel in a straight line when there is nothing to refract, reflect, or diffuse it from it's course.
travels through a uniform medium
While light will travel in essentially a straight line, it is affected by gravity. A strong enough gravitational pull can bend light and actually change its direction.
Light travels in a straight line under most conditions.
Normal. It takes a lot of mass to bend light.
Normally light travels in a straight line. However, it has been demonstrated that gravity can bend the path of light.
If light does not travel in a straight line, vision would not be accurate since objects will appear to be in different places. The reflected light that hits the eyes will bring images from different areas.
It does not, it is bent by very strong gravitational fields
Light travels in astraight line as it has the property known as the rectilinear prpogation of light.
I can't really think of any "evidence" of this that isn't trivially obvious. Take an object. Put something in between you and the object. Can you still see it? Then light must travel in a straight line.However... in fact, light does not travel in a straight line, it travels along a geodesic path, which ordinarily happens to be very, very close to a straight line. Near very massive objects, though, geodesics are not even close to straight lines.
Yes, according to the rectilinear propagation of light, light does travel in a straight line. The only two things that can possibly alter that are near-relativistic speeds, and intense gravity. The latter was proven during a total solar eclipse in 1919.
Light ray and gamma ray both travel 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!
No, light waves don't always travel in a straight line although they do move away from a source in a straight lineMagnetic forces and other kind of interference have the ability to bend and refract light waves; such as black holes.
In a straight line and at 186,000 miles per second (in a vacuum).
