How Light and Sound Interact with Matter

How Light and Sound Interact with Matter

by Jared Rovny

This course covers the material of content category 4D of the official MCAT exam content outline.

Matter is constantly interacting with energy, absorbing it from different sources and transmitting it. One of these sources is visible light, part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which enables the transmission of energy via the radiation of photons. Another source is sound waves, another type of radiation that transmits energy through vibrations.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the basics of the interactions between light, sound, and matter. For optimal comprehension, students are required to have a college-level understanding of physics.
