Absorption of Light

Basic objective of this lecture is to present on Absorption of Light. Absorption of light happens when atoms in an object absorb (take in and hold) the light waves. For example: You are able to see a red apple because all of the other light waves are absorbed but red is reflected to your eyes. In physics, absorption of electromagnetic radiation is the way in which the energy of a photon is taken up by matter, typically the electrons of an atom.
