  How to Light Your Home from channel4.com/4homes
That said, wall lights and table lamps are an added bonus because they will prove subtle sources of extra light for a special candlelit dinner.
Under-wall unit lighting or, failing that, downlighters that sit directly above the centre of worksurfaces, particularly in areas where you prepare food, are vital because they will give you an uninterrupted source of light (unlike a central ceiling light directed at a worksurface, which you will block with your own body).
Ideally, choose one that has three, four or even five directable lights, which can be either on a track that extends the length of a longer kitchen or on a single unit in a smaller room.

  Einstein | American Museum of Natural History
Light travels in waves that radiate outward from the source of light.
They believed that light from a source moving toward you (say, the headlight of an approaching train) would travel faster than light from a stationary source (a signal light next to the tracks).
Einstein's bold proposal has survived all tests to date: every experiment to measure the speed of light in a vacuum (space devoid of all matter) shows that it is indeed constant for all observers.

  Method and apparatus for the inspection of specularly reflective surfaces - Patent 5018867
a shade disposed between the light source and the surface for adjusting an angle between the optical axis of the light receiving means and the average radiation axis of the light reflected from the surface.
In the apparatus, a source of light transmits light to the surface of the object being inspected.
In such a case, each source of light is offset in the lateral direction in relation to the lens which corresponds to the source of light, in such a way that each lens will produce on the receiver apparatus an image of one of the sources of light via the illuminated surface.

 Tropical Gardens - LIGHT and Your Plants
The intensity of light a plant receives indoors depends upon the nearness of the light source to the plant (light intensity decreases rapidly as you move away from the source of light).
Low light intensity can be compensated for by increasing the time (duration) the plant is exposed to light, as long as the plant is not sensitive to day-length in its flowering response.
Fluorescent grow lights have a mixture of red and blue colors that attempts to imitate sunlight as closely as possible, but they are costly and generally not of any greater value than regular fluorescent lights.

 Light waves
Light and similar forms of radiation are made up of moving electric and magnetic forces and move as waves.
A large volume of light is called a beam; a narrow beam is called a pencil; and the smallest portion of a pencil is called a light ray.
Figure 1-18 indicates that light with a wavelength of 700 millimicrons is red, and that light with a wavelength of 500 millimicrons is blue-green.

by expressing in equations that light (as required by the principle of the constancy of the velocity of light, in combination with the principle of relativity) is also propagated with velocity c when measured in the moving system.
It is remarkable that the energy and the frequency of a light complex vary with the state of motion of the observer in accordance with the same law.
We seek for the pressure of light exerted on the reflecting surface, and for the direction, frequency, and intensity of the light after reflexion.

 Source of Light Ministries - About Us - History
The Source of Light Mission (now Source of Light Ministries Inter-national, Inc.) began in 1952 when two servants of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to expand the effectiveness of Gospel distributions and the proclamation of the Gospel by the means of free Bible correspondence courses.
In February 1954, the Source of Light Mission was incorporated as a nonprofit religious organization in the State of Georgia.
In order to more accurately reflect the organization's scope and activity, a name change to Source of Light Ministries International, Inc. was effected by the Executive Council and approved by the U.S. government in 1980.

 Xee-A Twelve:  The Source
The Branch of Light eventually became intertwined with the Shoot of Darkness as the shoot clung to the branch for sustenance and support.
The two Lights I am referring to should not be confused with the concept of the greater and lesser lights of the Masonic teachings.
This explains why beings of Light as well as beings of Darkness often claim that they are of the Light and have been in the Light during near-death experiences and at other times even though the Light they experienced is the False Light.

 Light
Light is not matter, and it is not made up of pieces of matter.
A light wave, like a wave on a beach, has two characteristics: one is the distance between two waves, i.e., the distance between two peaks (or two troughs).
Therefore, if you are moving towards a source of light (or the source of light is moving towards you), you will see the light at a slightly higher frequency, or smaller wavelength.

 The law of geometric propagation   (Site not responding. Last check: )
According to geometric optics, an opaque object illuminated by a point source of light casts a sharp shadow whose dimensions can be calculated using geometry.
Rays emanating from different elements of the source are assumed not to interfere with one another.
In the umbra, all of the light-rays emitted by the source are blocked by the opaque sphere, whereas in the penumbra only some of the rays emitted by the source are blocked by the sphere.

 bending
Whereas, the bending toward the light source occurred when the coleoptiletip was covered by a transparent cap or the region where bending occurred was covered by an opaque material.
The etiolated seedlings of higher plants are hypersensitive to blue light, even a brief exposure of one or two second of weak blue light is sufficient to elicit phototropic curvature.
Light caused a grater accumulation of auxin on the shaded side resulting in the faster elongation growth on that side, compared to illuminated side leading to curvature of the seedlings.

 Light
Light is almost our only tool in the study of the universe.
  Young further showed that light is a transverse wave, where the medium moves perpendicular to the direction that the wave is traveling.
A second wave property that we need to discuss is frequency, the number of complete events of a periodic phenomenon that occur in a certain time.

 rimric folio | The Source of Light: The Matrix Revolutions
Thirdly, the light of the Source is gold or red balanced.
This is why he increasingly interacts directly with the Source, why his matrix visage, along with Smith's, are turned to light, and why there is a golden sunset within the matrix at the end, which incidentally, balances out the green of the matrix to a golden, or even white light balance.
Indeed, the return of Neo to the Source, his bodily semblance to be gently carried away on the Arthurean barge, is really the only kind of an outcome which would truly complete this trilogy, because of the carefully laid groundwork.

 Light in Art
Being the source of light and heat, and consequently the source of all life, sun had been regarded as a deity and worshipped as such by all primitive man and having a surpassing place in their mythologies and religions.
The role of the sky god in ensuring food and in providing light and warmth, over against the chaotic effects of darkness, was a theme of various myths of the cosmic drama and was one main reason for the connection in mythic thought between creation and light.
According to myth, Mithra was born, bearing a torch and armed with a knife, beside a sacred stream and under a sacred tree, a child of the earth itself.

 What is Light?
When objects were within the field of the eye's light flow, they interacted with the light and were transmitted to the mind of the viewer, causing sight.
He said that light waves leaving a light source were the result of tiny wavelets, each radiating out from a point on the wave.
Instead, Newton proposed that light was made of particles, sometimes called corpuscular, which radiated out from sources of light.

1-why relativity say that the speed of light is fixed,in the space ofcourse,because the light has adiffrent speed in liquied generaly depending on the medium which pass trough
so it did not wine aceleleration by the speed of the source at all becaus the time of interfernce between the sound signal (a)and the source of the signal is very very small (t=1/f)and because f ranging from 20 hz to 20khz,
when the pulse of light or sound leave the source of it it is speed depend on the medum which it gothrough it

 The Theory of Light Without Special Relativity
In studies of quantum objects (the photon or field of light), the role of the physical frame of reference as well as the role of measurement is especially important.
That is, regardless of the speed of the moving source with respect to the medium, the interaction between light and the medium can result in levelling off of the light speed ('the localization of the velocity of light', according to Fox) at the value determined by the medium properties.
Consequently, the formula describing the Doppler effect for the case where a source of light is moving relative to the earth and the observer is at rest can be derived on the basis of the mathematical formalism of special relativity.

 Relative Velocity between a Source of Light and the Observer
It is generally stated that the phenomenon observed depends on the relative velocity between the source of light and the observer.
One must conclude that the statement claiming that the Bradley aberration (also called “light aberration”) is due to the relative motion between a source of light and an observer is certainly incorrect.
All observations of fast orbiting stars prove, without hesitation, that the star aberration is due to the velocity of the observer, independently of the velocity of the light source.
