What Can You See Through?
When you look through a clear glass window, you can see what is on the other side. This happens because light can pass right through the glass. Another way to say this is that clear glass transmits light. Materials or objects that transmit light are called transparent.
What happens when you look through a frosted glass window? You can see a little bit through the window, but you cannot clearly see what is on the other side. This happens because only a small amount of light is transmitted through the glass. Materials or objects that transmit only a little light are called translucent.
Can you see through a wooden door? No, the door does not let any light through. The wood absorbs the light instead of transmitting it. Materials or objects that absorb light are called opaque.
