The behavior of light as both a particle and a wave is one of the most exciting parts of physics. It leads into the modern physics of Unit 16, which is mind-bending, awesome fun! You’ll love it!
We know Isaac Newton for his work on mechanics,
but he also was the first to show that white light is comprised
of all of the colors of visible light!
