Transparent Translucent Opaque ( WITH EXAMPLES )

Wednesday, August 12, 2020

Transparent material allows visible light to pass through it. Some of the light may be absorbed, but it is possible to see objects through the material.

Translucent materials allow some light through them but it is scattered so it is impossible to see a clear image through the material.

Opaque materials don't let light through them at all. The light is either reflected or absorbed.
