    Light or visible light is electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye, and is responsible for the sense of sight.[1] Visible light has wavelength in a range from about 380 nanometres to about 740 nm, with a frequency range of about 405 THz to 790 THz. In physics, the term light sometimes refers to electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength, whether visible or not.
