Answer . White light is a mixture of all of the visible wavelengths in the spectrum. When white light strikes any object, some, all, or none is reflected off it and the balance of the light spectrum is absorbed. For example a baseball essentially reflects ALL of the wavelengths striking it, absorbi…ng none. While a black-colored racquetball absorbs ALL of the wavelengths, reflecting none. Objects that are colorized, absorb certain wavelengths, and reflect others. For example, a yellow ball absorbs the red and blue portions of the spectrum and reflects the yellow. Red colored objects reflect the blue and yellow portions of the spectrum and reflect the red. The primary colors of pigment are magenta, cyan, and yellow. This color mixing principle is called "subtractive". ( Full Answer )
Light can pass through many different types of materials. The reason why light can't pass through metal, or some plastics is not due to anything but the chemical properties of the material and the physical properties. If the conditions are right, any form of light can pass through a given material. … The reason why the chemical properties matter is that certain atoms absorb certain frequencies of light more readily than others. This can mean the difference between passing through a material or being absorbed and remitted. Other than this, there is really no other chemical factor that prohibits the passing of light. For example, water absorbs low frequency light (infrared) better and more readily than visible light. This is why many plastics will appear opaque to our eyes, yet will absorb others and appear opaque. The physical properties of the substance matters a great deal. The less dense a material is, the better the chance is that it will allow light to pass through it. Gasses are a great example. They let almost every frequency pass through. This is why when you use infrared cameras you cannot see the air, because it is not absorbing and releasing much of the radiation, but is letting it pass through, almost as if the medium wasn't there. Yet metals let few frequencies through, and are very compact. Many liquids filter the frequencies. Ultimately it comes down to which frequencies are absorbed readily, and how dense is the material. Too dense and nothing will pass through. Ready to absorb many frequencies and it will not let any pass through. ( Full Answer )
Yes. In fact, our eyes are able to percieve colour when it receives the light reflected from the object. The rods in eyes convert the light waves into an impulse which gets transmitted to the brain and analysed. Then we are able to 'see' the colour.
Yes, they can be reflected, yet I'm not quite sure about the others. Hope I helped a little.
\nConsider the mesh of matter and the wavelength of the light. In general the following is the pattern. \n. \nTRANSMISSION:If the matter mesh is bigger than than the the wavelength of light there is transmission, e.g X-Rays thru matter.\n. \nABSORPTION: If the mesh is equal to the wavelength, the…re is absorption, e.g Sunburn. \n. \nREFLECTION:If the mesh is smaller than the wavelength, there is reflection, e.g Mesh screen antennas.

how sound waves are transmitted is by vibrations of particles and fluids. How sound waves are reflected is by an echo
Absorbed Light: When light is absorbed we cannot see it. Reflected Light: When light is reflected, we can see it.
No material reflects all light. Silver is pretty close, which is why it is used for mirrors. As far as absorbing, porous black materials do the best job.
It will be white, because really, objects both reflect and absorb colors. For example, a red object absorbs every color aside from red, which reflects back. White absorbs no color and reflects all colors, while black absorbs them all and reflects none. . the rainbow will be reflected back
A material that reflects or absorbs any light that strikes it is opaque. Tranlucent or transparent materials allowsome or all light to pass through.
if it was say, a piece of paper that was red then it wound absorb all light and reflect red light.so i suppose that would be reflecting and absorbing TRUE
Highly conductive metals make the best electromagnetic reflectors as we can see from the equation: r=(1-B)/(1+B) The complex reflectivity of the metal tends to -1 as the complex B (Beta) factors tend to infinity. Since r=E reflected / E Incident we can see that if r = -1 we get perfect …reflection of the incoming EM radiation. ( Full Answer )
Any object you can see reflects light. If it did not reflect any light it would be invisible. Similarly, no object is so reflective that it reflects all light. The proof that it absorbs light is that it increses in temperature as it is exposed to light.
A white object will reflect the white light. (that's why we perceive the object to be white).
Except white and black all colors absorb a part of light and reflect an other one.
A mirror would be the most effective object for light reflection.\n\nTypically mirrors are "Silvered" using either silver or aluminum on the back and the light passes through glass to the silver and bounces back. \n\nHowever, astronomical mirrors have the mirrored surface on the front which will re…duce distortion ( Full Answer )
Black objects absorb all or most of the visible wavelengths of light, whereas white objects reflect all wavelengths. When all visible wavelengths (violet to red) enter the eye in equal proportions, the color is perceived as white. When no wavelengths reach the eye, the color is perceived as black.… Every other color is a mixture of this continuum of wavelengths. ( Full Answer )
An opaque object neither absorbs nor reflects all light. How much it absorbs and how much it reflects depends on the color of the object. An opaque object does not allow light to pass through. Hold up your wallet and look at it. Even if you hold it up to a strong light, you will not see any light …coming through it. But the wallet has a color, and this means it is absorbing some light, and it is reflecting some light. To say that an object absorbs some light is NOT the same as saying that the absorbed light must pass through the object. Light that passes through a translucent or transparent object is not absorbed; if it were, you wouldn't see it coming through, would you? ( Full Answer )
It is an opaque object coloured black to absorb most of the light and a white opaque object to reflect it or even a mirror.
If it absorbs all wavelengths then, by definition, it does not reflect any of the incident light. If it reflects all the incident light, then non is absorbed. The solution could also absorb some and reflect some (with different wavelengths).
This much depends on the properties of the plastic. Foam will reflect little and absorb much. Hard plastic will reflect much and absorb little. Soft plastic will absorb more than hard plastic and reflect more than foam. Regards.
Absorbed. Your red ink will look black. "Red" is a long wave-length color. "Blue" is a short one. What looks red in white light is a pigment that reflects red. It won't reflect blue, so it will look dark.
The wavelengths are corresponded to the color of the light. A blue object will reflect any light radiation expect the color blue. It will absorb the blue light.
When light hits an object it: reflects; bounces off another object refracts; bends absorbs; when light hits you it doesn't go through you, instead you absorb it
Use the equation c = fÎ» where f is the frequency and Î» is the wavelength. The speed of light is 3x10^8ms^-1. Hence... f = c/Î» = (3x10^8)/(5.5x10^-7) = 5.45x10^14Hz MAKE SURE THAT you get your units right, meaning that all the data is in meters, seconds, etc. ! :D
If it didn't reflect blue, then there wouldn't be any blue light from it to enter your eye, and you wouldn't see any blue. If the object looks blue, then you know two things: 1). There was some blue light hitting the object. 2). The blue light hitting the object wasn't all absorbed. At …least some of it was reflected from the object, toward your eye. ( Full Answer )
Anything that is blue is absorbing all the colors except blue . The blue light is reflected to your eye and you see the object as being blue.
An object that reflects all light waves that strike it appears the same color as whatever light illuminates it. Consider a piece of tissue, or a mirror.
No. Otherwise, we would have seen new colours when light is reflected, since all the colours have different frequencies.
Yes. Some is absorbed ... that's how the earth is warmed. Some is reflected ... that's how you can the earth if you're on the moon.
all of the colors of the rainbow are coming down to the object and all of the colors get absorbed except blue, it gets reflected. I am sorry i really dont know the answer but i hope this helps a little bit.
Translucent means "pass light". Transparent means "pass image". You could learn this by looking in a good dictionary. A translucent glass might be installed in your toilet room so that people could not see your minor private parts but light could shine in An ordinary window, transparent, is… one you would want to see through in both directions. Reflection is the bouncing of light from one surface to another direction. Refraction is the bending of light as it passes through mediums of different refractive indices. Absorption is the loss of energy suffered by a photon when it interacts with matter and usually results in heat. [unless it is really hot]. The simple answer is that translucent objects do all three!

Dark objects absorb wavelengths of energy that are in the visible spectrum of the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. A black shirt has molecules in it thatt absorbs energies of blue and green and all other colors we humans perceive. White light is made from all of the colors combined. A white shirt… has atoms and molecules that absorb all the colors of light and release that energy outwards again. ( Full Answer )
Then the object is slightly warmed, by the energy carried by thelight that it absorbs, AND it has color when you look at it ... the colorof the light that it reflects.
How can you see the object and its color if all light is being absorbed and no light is being reflected?
The object would appear black. If it were literally absorbing all light and reflecting no light, then you'd be able to see it by contrast with the background... unless the background were also true black, in which case you couldn't see it at all.
No, the frequency of light is the number of times a complete 'wavelength' of light (ignoring the photon-like nature of light) passes a fixed point in a second. Generally measured in Hertz (Hz).
Who was responsible for the contribution that light is emitted and absorbed in bundles that are dependent on the frequency of a light wave?
The first to observe (but not explain) the photoelectric effect were Hertz and Hallwachs in 1887. Albert Einstein received the 1921 Nobel Prize for physics: . ...for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. . His 1905 paper …explaining the photoelectric effect was rejected by physicists of that time and only accepted after experiments by Robert Andrews Millikan in 1914 showed that predictions made by Einstein's theory were correct - such as that the energy of individual ejected electrons increases linearly with the frequency of the light.

simple when a light strikes a surface the amount of energy that refactes that surface is generally aborbed by the object(material) which it aabsorbs the energy from light.
No. A black hole does not reflect light waves. But that is assuming you regard a black hole as an "object."
First, you need to define "light". Visible light only? Up into the ultra-violet? Down into infrared? Many filters wil block and/or reflect wavelengths above or below a certain cutoff point, while passing waves away from that point. As a for instance, a red filter will pass wavelengths from arou…nd 550 nm and longer, while it blocks anything shorter than 550. A green filter is a "notch" filter, in that it will only pass wavelengths from around 550 to around 500 nm. At the other end, a blue filter will block anything longer than about 500 nm, and pass shorter wavelengths, possibly up into the ultraviolet range. That being said, nothing in this universe is perfect. No surface will reflect all wavelengths that land on it; any reflective surface will have some losses, both through what it allows to pass, and what it absorbs into itself, generally turning into heat. On the other end, the closest thing you might find to a "surface" that could absorb all light that falls on it would be a black hole. ( Full Answer )
That depends on the material, its colour and the light. If you hitsomething red with red light it almost reflects everything, if youhit it with blue light, it gets almost completly absorbed.
Generally, a mirror, as it was literally created to reflect light.However, any white object reflects light (it appears white as itreflects all colored light in the visible light spectrum).
An opaque object absorbs all the light that hits it.That's why there's never any light left to come out of the other side.
A very intruiging question. First you must know that our eye canpercieve light waves of frequencies 4000-7000 Angstrom. Now takethe leaf for example. Its color is green. Why is it green? Itsbecause the leaf absorbs all other light waves except green. Itreflects it back. So to the green wave it acts …as a mirror. Notexactly. You see elements emit that light which it absorbs (lawlaid down by Fraunhoffer). So the compound which is present inchlorophyl absorbs green and emits green also. So the green wavesenergy is conserved. ( Full Answer )
Plants reflects the colors of light that they do not absorb This reflected light determines their color Why are there few blue colored plants?
The light you see outside does not look like it, but it contains all of the colors of the rainbow.so plants take in the frequency of which it takes in.
when light bounces off of a bumpy surface, will you see the objectthe light is striking
Sound waves are compressive waves, usually in air. Air is themedium. If sound travels from air to a rock, most of the energy isreflected. If sound travels from air to a rough and irregularsurface, much of the sound will be absorbed (after reflectingabout). When sound travels from cold air to warm ai…r, most fo thesound energy is transmitted. The relative transmission speed of thetwo materials affects the outcome. If one surface is rough, thenaffects the transmission. The "how" has to do with the relativespeeds and the surface particulars. (Rock transmits sound fasterthan air; cold better than warm.)

On stage in a theatre red light shines and clothes appear red, bluelight is shone an clothes appear blue, what colour are they?
Both. The darker the book's color the more light it absorbs, but ifit did not reflect some light then you could not see the book.
The light wave could be absorbed by the object, in whichcase its energy is converted to heat. The light wave could bereflected by the object. And the light wave could be transmitted bythe object. ...
