What is the speed of darkness?
The universe consists only of space, mass and energy. The word 'speed' is applicable only to mass (solid, liquid, or gas) or energy (heat, light, electromagnetic waves, etc.). Darkness is not a mass nor energy, so the word speed cannot be applied to darkness.
- Darkness is the absence of light. There is no speed of darkness.
- I guess you could say that darkness "arrives" when light departs. So the speed that light "leaves" the observed space would be the speed of darkness; meaning the speed of darkness would be the speed of light, about 3.00 × 108 m/s. The same reasoning is behind the statement "there is no 'cold,' only the absence of heat."
- I think the contributor is asking a joke or riddle - a play on "the speed of light."
- There is a "Speed of Darkness". It is the fifth studio album by the Celtic Punk band Flogging Molly. It was released May 31, 2011.
- According to the Discworld series of books by Terry Pratchett, Darkness is faster than the speed of light as no matter how fast light tries to get there, darkness always got there first.
Darkness is only the absence of light. The 'speed of darkness', or the speed at which darkness 'propagates' (even though only the absence of photons is propagating) is therefor equal to the speed of light. Read More
Darkness does not have speed since it is merely the absence of light. Read More
When scientists refer to the speed of light, they're talking about the photons which make up light. Darkness is the absence of light; hence, there are no photons. There is nothing to measure. The speed of darkness is undefined as there is no quanta making up darkness. Put simply: There is no speed of darkness! Read More
No, darkness does not have physical properties as it isn't anything at all. Darkness is defined as the absence of light, it is just what happens when light is not present. Read More
What is the speed of Darkness If darkness is the absence of light then you think that light is the absence of darkness.?

If a black hole can suck-up and draw in light then the speed of darkness must be faster then the speed of light?
Not quite. Remember that darkness is simply the absence of light. If you flipped a lightswitch in a closed room the light turns off, and it goes dark. The reason that is is because the lack of a light source. Some animals can take that lack of a lightsource and see using infrared visuals. They DONT emit a red light so darkness is still set there, but they can see through the darkness. The reason… Read More
It doesn't have a velocity! However, in theory, one could say that darkness is the only thing that replaces light!! So as light goes away, darkness takes its place!! So darkness probably travels at the speed of light :D - 186000 miles per second (that's about 7.5 times round the earth in a second) Read More
Same as the speed of light. Darkness is only the absence of light, so when light leaves a specific "space" (at the speed of light) then the time it takes to be dark there will be equal to the time it takes the light to leave. Read More
no, it is the speed of light just at a lower level of intensity. Light travels and never ends even when it hits a planet light still exist just at a lower intensity. Read More
It depends. If this is a theological question then the answer should be no as darkness represents evil and evil is almost always thought of as inferior to good. If this is an astrophysical question then the answer would probably be yes as space expands faster than the speed of light so there is more darkness in he universe than light and the light will eventually die off but darkness will still be left.

I love this question. Einstien has a great quote on the answer. There is no such thing as dark or cold or even dumb. dark is the absence of light. cold is the absence of heat and being dumb is the absence of intelligence. there is no speed of dark, but you could probably get away with saying its the same speed as light as dark follows light. Even the best of us can be… Read More

This is a lot like the situation with 'silence' ... the name we give to the… Read More
