Do all wavelength of light make it through the atmosphere? Explain. please detail help and answer

  • Astronomy 1010 - ,

    It depends upon what you call "light". All visible wavelengths make it through the atmosphere with very little absorption, if the air is unpolluted. The wavelengths that do not make it through are in the infrared and ultraviolet.

    If you restrict the definition of light to radiation of visible wavelengths, then the answer is "Yes".
