Photosynthetically active radiation
Starting an indoor garden could be a fun and sustainable method to grow those fresh vegetables you need during summer months when there is an insufficiency of sunlight. And just as every farmer knows (sure you’re one) – plants need sunlight, in fact, plenty of light to grow, bud, flower, and to yield bountiful produce. Figuring out how to supply...
glass block uv light
The answer is Yes and No – stay with me here and I will explain. First of all, there’s a popular saying “you can’t get a sunburn through a glass”, you’ve heard the saying or might have even said it yourself right? Well, the truth is you might not get a sunburn, but it’s a far cry from reality...
In this article, we take a look at what Sun Bleaching is and some of the different ways that you can take advantage of it. Simply put, when you put something outside and it is exposed to natural sunlight, the colours of the object will begin to fade. This is known as "Sun Bleaching". To make things more complicated, when the...
Vitamin D: What Is It? It's a fat-soluble organic substance that occurs in eggs, fish-liver oils, etc. and is essential for the formation of teeth and bones. Vitamin D is primarily responsible for controlling the level of phosphorus and calcium in the human body. These reasons are more than enough for you to ensure that you consume foods that are rich...
Ultraviolet radiation is a part of the sunlight spectrum that reaches the earth. It has wavelengths shorter than visible light, making it invisible to the naked eye. The UV light has a wavelength between 10 to 400nm. The UV light is broken down into three types of UV bands: UVA, UVB, and UVC. They decrease in wavelength from A to C,...
If you ever wondered how UV light kills bacteria, search no more. You're in the right spot. Ultraviolet light, through the sanitization process and packed into the right device(I would mention here UV air purifiers, ultraviolet wands, toothbrush sanitizers or UV phone sanitizers), can be used to kill germs and bacteria. Bacteria are a group of single-celled microorganisms that reproduce through cell...
When reading about uv light, there are these two terms that seem to be confusing: UV light and black light. In a nutshell, there isn't quite a difference, but a misunderstanding of the terms. Black light is nothing but UVA light, while UV light is basically composed out of UVA, UVB and UVC. So in other words, black light is...
10 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT UV LIGHT
Ultraviolet radiation is a light spectrum that includes visible light and light that cannot be seen. The human eye cannot detect any UV light, but a few insect have the capability to see the light. The light is indirectly visible through the light-emitting fluorescent objects that emit the radiation through the light they produce. The UV radiation spectrum lies between...
Ultraviolet light, also known as UV light, is a type of electromagnetic radiation that has a wavelength somewhere close to light and X-rays. It is used broadly all over the world, in everything from the generation of usable electric power to the many other regular uses for a simple black light. UV lights are used in various applications ranging...
