- Why is glass transparent? 6 answers
This might be a very stupid question for Science students, but I had this doubt always, since childhood. I still don't understand even when I'm adult because I didn't read science in detail.
When I would ask the same question from my teachers, first my classmates and teachers would laugh. Then he would reply:
This has no answer. Why is a man a man?
I felt bad.
Now, I do feel like it has something to do with Photons. But since I don't know much Physics, and I'm not in touch with it, I can't understand it.
Is there any basic way to help me understand this?
Like I can feel that light can enter from anything which has pores.
I can understand that air can't flow through glass.
But I just can't feel/understand how light can pass through it.
