Corpuscular theory

Wave theory

·         According to this theory light consists of small particles called corpuscular.

 

·         Light particles travel with the velocity of light in the straight line.

·         Light travels with faster velocity in the denser medium.

·         According to wave theory light is a form of energy because it travels in the form of a wave.

·         Waves travel with the velocity of light but not in the straight line.

·         Light travels with slow velocity in the denser medium.
