Light (sunbeam)

The visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum with wavelengths of 400—700 nm. It is very often used to refer to a radiation incident from the Sun. The term beam or ray refers to the idealized path of electromagnetic radiation from the source to the observer or target. In a homogeneous medium, the beam takes the form of a straight line.
