What Is heat?
The Quality of being hot; high temperature
What is conduction?
the process by which heat is directly transmitted through a substance
What is Convection?
Heat transfer in a gas or liquid by the circulation of currents from one region to another
What is Radiation?
the emission of energy as electromagnetic waves or as moving subatomic particles
Absorb: take in or soak up (energy, or a liquid or other substance).
Angle of Incidence: the angle that an incident line or ray makes perpendicular to the surface at the point of incidence.
Angle of Reflection: the angle made by a reflected ray with a perpendicular to the reflecting surface.
Concave: having an outline or surface that curves inward like the interior of a circle or sphere.
Convex: having an outline or surface curved like the exterior of a circle or sphere.
Diffuse: spread or cause to spread over a wide area
Light: the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible.
Light Spectrum: The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.
Light Waves: visible light is electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye, and is responsible for the sense of sight
Opaque: not able to be seen through; not transparent.
Prism: a solid geometric figure whose two end faces are similar, equal, and parallel rectilinear figures, and whose sides are parallelograms.
Reflection: the throwing back by a body or surface of light, heat, or sound without absorbing it.
Refraction: the fact or occurance of light, radio waves, etc., being deflected in passing obliquely through the interface between one medium and another
Roy G Biv: Roy G. Biv is an acronym for the sequence of hues commonly described as making up a rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.
Spectrum: a band of colors, as seen in a rainbow, produced by separation of the components of light by their different degrees of refraction according to wavelength.
Translucent: a substance that allows light, but not detailed images, to pass through; semitransparent.
Transmitted: to pass from one place to another
Transparent: (of a material or article) allowing light to pass through so that objects behind can be distinctly seen.
White Light:all the wavelengths of the visible spectrum at equal intensity.
