Question asked by: nikhilraj

Asked on: 31 Jul 2010

Yes light is a form of energy.

To prove this get a solar cell and you will see that you get electrical energy out as a result from that, for instance switch on a solar powered calculator and you can prove that light is a form of energy since it is light energy that makes the solar powered calculator work.
