Light and the EMS

What is Light?


What is light?" White light is all colors, like the colors of the rainbow.  Isaac Newton discovered the color of light by shining white light through a prism. You can demonstrate his experiment using a flashlight and a prism. This is called the "visible light spectrum." The visible light spectrum is a part of a larger spectrum called the electromagnetic spectrum. Light is energy and there is energy beyond visible light.
