Transparency

Alright, since the next topic for my Science test is materials, I just thought that I could do on transparency. So alright, transparency is a measure of the transmission of light that passes through an material. If that is too complicated for you, then transparency is basically how much light you can shine through something. There are mainly 3 groups of transparency. Completely transparent, translucent and opaque.

Completely Transparent: Means that you can see through it. (Or if you want it more scientifically, it means that you can shine light straight through it with no interference.) things like glass, clear plastic, and crystals are transparent

Translucent: Basically means that you can see through it, but not completely. You probably know what I mean, coloured plastic, coloured water, tracing paper. If you shine a light through a translucent object, there will be less light coming out from the other side

Opaque: This means that you can’t see through it at all. (what a surprise) Lots of stuff are like that, metals, wood, fabrics, your head, they’re all opaque. If you shine some light on it, there will be one big shadow and no light.

So basically everything can be grouped into these 3 groups, if you’re wondering how opaque stuff like mirrors can reflect light, I am sorry, you’ll have to wait until my comic about mirrors.

Of course, you future scientists out there won’t let anything rest until you have tested it. That is why we have taken the time and care to invite up into this site, Celebrity Kiat and his girlfriend, who have willingly volunteered themselves for the experiment:
