Summary:
This program examines the development of Christiaan Huygen's wave model of light behavior, which eventually superseded Newton's particle model. It also illustrates how energy is transmitted through a medium, and demonstrates both Thomas Young's theory of light interference and Jean Foucault's observations on the speed of light.
