Visible light is very familiar to us, as are other forms of electromagnetic radiation, which are used when you use a microwave oven, or watch a television, or have an X-ray. But although scientists understand electromagnetic radiation very well, it is still a rather strange property. This book uses detailed interactive activities and experiments to help you grasp the science of light. A student at A-level, International Baccalaureate, or K-12 level will be stretched by this content and teaching. If in doubt, download the free sample. 
Note: several interactive elements in this book contain flashing images that may be harmful to some readers.
