Science / Light

The branch of physics dealing with the properties and behaviour of light is called optics. Light is a form of energy which helps us to see the objects.

Have you ever wondered why we are able to see the different objects around us, their images in a mirror or in a pond? This is simply due to reflection of light. It is the phenomenon of bouncing back of light after striking a smooth polished surface.
Why is the word "ambulance" written backwards in ambulance car? This is due to lateral inversion -The phenomenon due to which the left side of an object appears to be right side of the object in its image in a reflecting medium (mirror ) and vice-versa is called lateral inversion.

Enjoy interesting trivia related to spherical mirrors(concave and convex) and plane mirror, optics, sunlight. Understand the differences between mirrors and lenses.
Learn about the formation of rainbow. Did you know that you can see a rainbow only when your back is towards the sun?
