1. Why do not transparent materials cast their shadows?

Asked by prasannasivaa | 8th Jan, 2016, 01:49: PM

Expert Answer:

Materials that are transparent allow the entire light to pass through them.
For a shadow to be cast, the object should block some or the entire light falling onto it.
Hence, a transparent object which allows all the light to pass through does not casr a shadow.
