LIGHT: is the electromagnetic radiation that is
visible to the human eye, and is responsible for
the sense of sight.
There are two kind of light sources:
Light rays have

Light rays that are below vision range are
called INFRARED RAYS and light rays that are
above vision range are called ULTRAVIOLET
Is a phenomenon that happens when a ray of
light goes through a transparent surface such as
glass or water.

Reflection is when light bounces off an object. If the
surface is smooth and shiny, like glass, water or
polished metal, the light will reflect at the same angle
as it hit the surface. This is called specular reflection.
Is a phenomenon in which two waves
superpose to form a resultant wave of greater
or lower amplitude.
