The Handbook of Light Interactions presents real data on how various materials interact with light. The investigation on which the book is based took place in a dark room with a flashlight as the only source of light.
The resulting data is organized into tables by type of material, showing how much light each material absorbed, reflected, and transmitted.
By comparing their observations with data in the book, students can draw more accurate conclusions about how light interacts with various materials.
This book supports students’ firsthand investigations by providing additional information that they need to answer important questions about light interactions. It also provides quantitative data for them to interpret.
