Your question is somewhat difficult to interpret, but presumably you are referring to visible light and the word "clearly" is key. Many media are transparent to the electromagnetic radiation we call light. Light passes through a vacuum freely, without obstruction or change. A wide range of gasses and solids transmit light (permit light to pass through) in varying degrees. Clear glass is highly transparent. Gold hammered to a thickness of a few atoms is translucent. These denser media cause temporary or permanent change to light waves passing through them. Glass causes the light to slow down slightly so that a wave front striking a flat clear glass surface obliquely is bent. Upon exiting a parallel surface into its original, less dense medium, it resumes its original speed and direction. White light is made up of a continuous spectrum of wavelengths and corresponding frequencies that we see as a rainbow of colors. White light passing into a thin sheet of gold is diffused (scattered), and while all wavelengths are absorbed to some degree, only a small amount of green light actually emerges. Light is affected by any medium other than vacuum by slowing, absorption in all or some wavelengths, and diffusion. All media denser than vacuum slow and absorb, but diffusion is a function of the clarity of the material.
An earlier answer said light passes through darkness. Somewhat poetic, perhaps, but not quite accurate. Darkness is definable as the absence of light, but if you consider light in a broader definition encompassing the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from low frequency long radio waves to very high frequency short waves like X-rays and gamma rays, you would be hard pressed to find a truly dark place anywhere in the Universe, if only you have the means to see.
an object which allows light to pass through easily is described as ? ........................................................................................................................ translucent
substances through which light can pass partially but we cannot see through them clearly.
A translucent material.
transparent allow light to pass through and can see clearly through them and opaque has none of this ability
It is a liquid that allows light to pass through it, but images on the other side would not be clearly defined.
Translucent describes an object that allows light to pass through it. Sunglasses do allow light to pass through them, they just filter out some of the harmful and harsh light.
There are two different words that might apply here. A material is "transparent" if you can see through it. A material is "translucent" if light passes through it, but you can't see an image clearly through it.
Translucent materials will allow light to pass through them, but usually it also scatters the light a little so that you can't see through it clearly like a transparent piece of glass.
All light passes through glass that is transparent. But, if the glass is translucent (such as some bathroom windows or shower doors for privacy), only some light passes through, causing you to not see the object clearly.
no light does not pass through milk
allows light to pass through
Opaque objects do not allow light to pass through them.
A book isn't translucent, it's opaque.A transparent object allows most of the light to pass through it allowing us to see through clearly through it.A translucent object allows some of the light to pass through it allowing us to see through it to a limited extent.An opaque object allows no light to pass through it and does not allow us to see through it at all.
yes, light will pass through quartz
Travels in straight linesCan be reflectedAll/Most light can pass through transparent objectsSome light can pass through translucent objectsNo light can pass through opaque objects
Transparency is defined as a quality an object has that allows light to pass through it and any objects on the opposite side can clearly be seen through through the transparent object. Translucent objects still allow light to pass through them, but the objects on the opposite side are not clearly visible. It could be likened to two pieces of glass. One is from a window and the other is frosted. The one piece from the window is transparent, and the frosted piece is translucent
no this a opaque material opaque is a material where light cannot pass through so it cannot pass through
Transparent materials will always allow light to pass through, translucent materials will allow light to pass through as well but the light rays will be scattered. Opaque materials will not allow any light to pass through.
Obviously it is clearly translucent. Try shining a torch through your fingernail and you will notice you can see the light pass through your nail.
Transparent materials allow light to freely pass through them. Translucent materials also allow light to pass through them, but change the colour of the light.
the answer is transpsrent paper
"Translucent" means kind of see-through. Technically, it means that light can pass through it diffusely - i.e. light gets through, but you can't see any shapes through it clearly. Examples are frosted glass, thick cellophane etc.
Opaque materials do not allow light to pass through them.
