Properties Of Light

Following are the properties of light:

  • Reflection of light: Every light follows the law of reflection which states that the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection.
  • Refraction of light: Refraction of light takes places when the light ray changes its velocity it passes from one medium to another. Index of refraction is used as a means to measure how much light refracts.
  • Dispersion: Dispersion of light is defined as the process in which the white light separates into different colours based on their wavelength when passed through a glass prism.
