You're not going to overturn a century of physics with this. Even matter can pass through other matter. If you don't believe me google "Rutherford scattering" and "neutrinos" separately.
I think your the one trying to overturn physics. Neutrinos are smaller than most particles, but they do eventually slow down and have been collected under hundreds of meters of granite. Once again, they wouldn't slow down unless they had mass that produces friction as they pass through objects.
When scientists add up the mass of all the visible matter in the Universe, they arrive at a total of just 10 percent of what they know should exist. For years, neutrinos were not thought to have any mass, although that theory has been challenged by experiments at Japan's SuperKamioKande lab, which suggested that they may have a mass, albeit a very tiny one. The new experiment seeks to amplify and confirm this finding.
You're right, it does depend on wavelength. The reason light doesn't make it to the bottom is because it's absorbed, reflected, refracted by the water.
Your missing the point. Blue makes it deeper into the ocean. If mass wasn't a factor then red light would penetrate just as deep.
When light hits a substance, it can do
one of three things: it can be scattered,
by hitting molecules of the substance and
bouncing off in different directions; it can
pass through the substance; or it can be
absorbed by the substanceÃ¢â‚¬â€either wholly
or in only some wavelengths.
"Bouncing off" is something that happens when two particles of mass collide. Blue light, being a shorter wavelength, is able to penetrate deeper.
Then why doesn't visible light pass through those little holes??? Why can't you see the man's hand???
His hand isn't emitting light; You would have to look inside the bag to see any light that may be passing through the bag. Infrared is only visible as a heat source, which is visible from outside
X-Rays are another good example.
Yes. Bones are denser than tissue, so they appear darker because less x-rays are able to pass through. If they had no mass the entire x-ray would appear as a white sheet without any detail. Once again, the density of the object determines how much is able to pass through; Look at the ring in the x-ray below. It is almost black because it is much denser than bone.
