i went to Puchong yesterday with my younger brother, Arief.
Arief is an intelligent boy who likes to ask questions and sometimes i get annoyed with his ridiculous questions.
often i just tell him to google it himself since he's always in front of the computer anyway.
but since we were in the car at the time, i couldn't answer him that now could i?
at first he asked me about my job, which i answered patiently.
and then he asked me why the sky is blue.
hmmmm.. quite tough there coz it has been a while since i've been in touch with the science in normal life.
i answered him with the basics.
"coz of the atmospheres la. kan there're layers of atmosphere, so as the light from the sun reaches the earth, the only colour that we see is blue."
"oh ok" he said. in my head i was like "phewwwww!" glad he didn't press on the question coz i really forgot about the physics of it. muahaha! =p
and then he asked me
"then kak ena, why is the ocean blue? when we were on the plane, i saw the ocean being green and brown most of the time. but the picture taken by astronaut of the earth shows that it's blue. why?"
AKU TAK TAU NYAH!!
it's true kan? when we're near the sea or flying over it (macam superman), the ocean is not blue as how the picture of the earth is.
i said "i think the astronauts lied. they photoshopped their pictures!! curse them for feeding us with liessss!!". anda, kalau anda percaya saya dramatic macam ni memang nak kena.
i was just kidding!
i told arief that i don't know. i never thought of the differences of the ocean colours from bird-view and from outerspace view. nyahahaha! so we just made a pact to research on that when we get home.
nak tau the answer? dont care. imma give it anyway. ahak!
1. Some of the sunlight is reflected off the surface of the water, reflecting the colour of the sky
2. Some of the sunlight penetrates the water and is scattered by ripples and particles in the water (this tinges the appearance of the ocean with the color of the particles). In deep water, much of the sunlight is scattered by the oxygen in the water, and this scatters more of the blue light.
3. Water absorbs more of the red light in sunlight; the water also enhances the scattering of blue light.thank you Mr Google! full stuff right >here<
ha amik kau. a 15 year old boy asked a simple question and a 25 year old "engineer" me didn't succeed. hahaha! so what's my point here? i'm no genius! peace. =p
okeh, may i have some chillpopia?
why, yes please-ness!
Green Henley Tunic top from ThePoplook \ Printed shawl i scored for RM 5 at KL vintage festival (so much win!!) \ Jeans from jalan mak joyah \ Vans shoes \ blablabla =p
an unnecessary vain shot of me. bengahahahaha! =p
anyway, today is Mother's day! i know many voiced out that mother's day should be everyday, and to that i agree too, but to have one day where everyone everywhere bersepakat to treat their mothers, i think that is just awesome. but again, mothers should always be celebrated and treated specially everytime =)
aaaaaaaaaaaaannd not forgetting our fathers too!
Happy Mother's Day to all mothers!
may Allah SWT bless all of you for being awesome. =D
