Properties and Behaviors of Heat, Light, and Sound


This past summer, you may have been outside and noticed the bright sunlight on a hot day. Perhaps you wondered how these two observations were related. Did you know that sound is related to heat and light as well? What properties of these three things causes scientists to group them together? Do they act similar? Find the answers to these and related questions as you explore this section of Sci-ber text.


Enjoy your Sci-ber text exploration of the heat, light, and sound! If you find a word that you do not understand, please visit the "Science Language Students Should Know And Use" web page.
