Likewise, he first proposed the wave theory of light; although it was Huygens who established it on its present foundation.
Explain how the fact of polarization affects the wave theory of light.
Thus he approximates to the wave theory of light, though he supposed that the transmission of light was instantaneous.
Nature of Light; wave theory, interference, polarization, significance.
We will therefore look at wave motion, in order to understand the wave theory of light.
It is evidently under the spell of the wave theory of light and heat.
As stated at the time, this discovery ushered in the darkest hour in the fortunes of the wave theory.
So that the emission theory harmonizes with the wave theory in regard to reflection.
We have up to the present dealt with only two theories of light, the Corpuscular theory and the Undulatory or wave theory.
For now wellnigh a century we have had a wave theory of light; and a wave theory of light is quite certainly true.
