Their 1 When light meets matter Last week we learned that the electromagnetic spec- trum encompasses much more than the visible light represented by the colors of the rainbow. In fact, visible light is less than one percent of the entire spectrum which includes radio wave, micro- waves, infrared, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays. As the name indicates, electromagnetic waves are composed of both electric and magnetic fields which oscillate perpendicular to one another and to the direc- tion of travel. In the vacuum of space, these waves travel at the speed of light until they interact with matter. When light interacts with matter it can do one of sev- eral things, depending on its wavelength and what kind of matter it encounters: it can be transmitted, reflected, refracted, diffracted, adsorbed or scattered. The simplest interaction with light is transmission, which occurs when light passes through the object without interacting. Light coming through window is a simple example of transmis- sion. Reflection occurs when the incoming light hits a very smooth surface like a mirror and bounces off, like a mir- ror. Refraction occurs when the incoming light travels through another medium, from air to glass for exam- ple. When this happens the light slows down and chang- es direction. This change in direction is dependent on the light's wavelength so its spectrum of wavelengths are separated and spread out into a rainbow. Diffraction occurs when light hits an object that is similar in size to its wave- length. When light passes through a sufficiently-thin slit it will diffract and spread. If it's visible light, this will also create a rainbow. Absorption occurs when the incoming light hits an object and causes its atoms to vibrate, converting the energy into heat which is radiated. Anyone with a dark-colored car on a hot day will experience the effects of adsorption. Scattering occurs when the incoming light bounces off an object in many differ- ent directions. A good exam- ple of this is known as Rayleigh scattering, where sunlight is scattered by the gasses in our atmosphere. This is what gives the sky its blue color. 1) True or false: A rainbow is created when light is reflected. 2) Light passing through window is an example of a) diffrac- tion b) reflection c) adsorption d) transmission 3) True or false: The Raleigh effect explains why the sky appears blue. 4) Heat radiating off a black top road on a hot day is an example of a) reflection b) adsorp- tion c) diffraction d) scat- tering 5) When light passes through a thin slit, it can be Answers page 7 Copyright (C) 2011 Weekly Science Quiz All rights reserved.

After mak- ing Madelia punt away their first possession, WWG's Alex Knutson busted through for 40 yards on the first play on offense for a 6-0 lead. The Chargers went fight back to work on defense as Dusty Taylor forced a fumble recov- ered by WWG. After a few plays on offense, Knutson found the sideline seam and rambled another 40 yards for a Charger 12-0 lead. Next possession, Tyson Berg was the recipient of a 50 yard Shane Buchman pass that put the Chargers up 20-0 in the first quarter. Madelia was able to march down the field in the second quarter and score bring the game to 20-8. Just before halftime, Buchman found Knutson up the sideline for a 65 yard TD pass, putting WWG up 28-8 at the break. The second half was a dif- ferent story. After the Chargers fumbled away the first play from scrimmage, Madelia cashed in on a short drive putting the game at 28-14. Knutson returned the ensuing kickoff for a 75-yard score and a 36-14 lead. Well, just when things looked com- fortable for WWG, Madelia stormed back, scoring the next three possessions and trailing 36-32 with 1:30 to go. WWG recovered the onside kick and knelt the game away. Defensively for the Chai'gers, Tyler Schoborg led all tackles with 10, followed by Shane Buchman and Dusty Taylor with 7. Buchman intercepted 3 pass- es, while Taylor forced 2 fumbles. Offensively, Alex Knutson had 130 yards rushing on 15 carries, and Mitchell Jarmer had 30 on 6 carries. Tyson Berg had 50 yards receiving and Shane Buchman was 6 of 12 passing for 130 yards and two touchdowns. The Chargers play their final game at home against SWU, Monday, October 17, at 4:30.

Windom Citizen - A severe case of buyer's remorse has hit the Cottonwood County board of commissioners. A week ago commissioners approved a bid by Waste Management, Inc to handle the county's entire single stream recycling. But if the board buys its own recycling containers it is estimated to save the county $25,000 to $30,000 a year. County Attorney Nick Anderson is checking if it is legal to rescind that approved vote.

The Chargers just couldn't seem to f'md an answer for SWC's good serving and were defeated 0-2. In game 1, SWC showed their impressive serving skills and built up a 6-0 lead right away. The Chargers called a timeout to regroup and find an answer to stop- ping the Eagles. After settling into a rhythm, the Chargers actually stayed within strik- ing distance of their oppo- nent. It was then a back and forth game that showed much offense from both sides and also provided some lengthy rallies. SWC's offense proved to be too much in the end and beat the Chargers 25-16. Kaylee Mischke and Jordaan Joel led the attack, as they each had 2 kills. Defensively, Liz Woelber had 4 digs fol- lowed by Shiney Her and Alexa Byers with 3 apiece. Game 2 was a better game all around for the Chargers. The defense seem to pick up everything the Eagles threw at them and WWG gave SWC a run on the offensive side battling them almost point for point until the Eagles pulled away from a 21-21 tie to win 21-25. Abby Herding led the team from the attack line as she went 6 for 6 with 4 kills. Liz Woelber and Herding provided good defense as each had 6 digs and Alexa Byers had 5. Chargers JV blank SSC 2-0 The WWG Chargers JV volleyball team won an excit- ing matchup against the SSC Quasars Thursday night, October 6, in Westbrook tak- ing them by the scores of 25-21 and 25-23. It was defi- nitely a team effort as each member of the squad contrib- uted to the victory. The Chargers led game one from the beginning but it was quite a battle to the end. WWG used strong serving and attacking to hold off the visitors. As a team, the Chargers were 23 of 24 from the serving line with 4 aces. Mady Johnson, Shiney Her, Abby Herding and Liz Woelber each provided an ace from the line. Herding put up 6 set assists with Her and Alexa Byers each provid- ing one. Leading the attack game was Jordaan Joel who was 9 for 12 with 3 kills. Woelber followed that up as she went 5 for 7 with 2 kills. Herding, Kaylee Mischke and Deziree Koenig also had 2 kills apiece. Alexa Byers led the defensive side as she picked up 5 digs. She was followed by Woelber with 3 and Herding and Mady Johnson who each had 2. The Chargers came out in game 2 somewhat hesitant. They kept the game close early on, but then the Quasars started to slowly build a lead. The Chargers saw their backs against the wall as the oppo- nents sat on a 16-23 advan- tage. That's until Kaylee Mischke stepped to the ser- vice line and led the rally. She came to the line and handled the pressure well, finishing the game for the Chargers as they beat the Quasars in a thrilling 25-23 comeback win. Mischke served 100% from the line as did Mady Johnson, Liz Woelber and Abby Herding. Herding also provided 7 set assists. The Chargers put up some impressive numbers from the attack line as they were 36 of 40. Johnson, Woelber and Mischke each contributed 3 kills. Herding had 8 digs, followed by Woelber and Alexa Byers with 5.
