Transcript of Light
Date of Birth: January 4, 1643 in Woolsope, England.
What is the visible Spectrum
What is the Invisible Wavelengths
Year of Death: March 31, 1737 in London England.
Where did he Study; Trinity College Cambridge.
By refracting light through a prism he discovered that light is made up of a whole spectrum of colours.
The Refracting telescope formed images by using lenses to bend light. he also made a telescope with mirrors this resulted in much higher quality.
This came later.
What did these light experiments prove
The refracting light through a prism is made up of a whole spectrum of colours. Newtons refracting telescope avoided his problem by using mirrors to reflect light.
The Visible Spectrum
The visible spectrum is the portion of the
electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the human eye. Electromagnetic radiation in this range of wavelengths is called visible light or simply light.
What is the correct order of the colours in the rainbow
The correct colours of the rainbow in order are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet
Forms of electromagnetic radiation like waves
Any part of the invisible spectrum that is not part of the visible spectrum.
Microwaves, radio waves, AM, FM and gamma rays.
