USER: what does the word translucent mean?

DANIELLE: permitting the passage of light:



USER: what does that mean?

DANIELLE: partially transparent. you can see through it. [s]

USER: so what material would be translucent?

DANIELLE: lots of materials. glass that is not completely clear, some gemstones, etc.

USER: ok so how would i put it into a sentence if i was answering this... what does the word translucant mean? Give an example of an translucant material.

DANIELLE: a translucent object allows the passage of light but if a diffuse way so that objects cannot be seen clearly. a green glass bottle is a translucent object.





USER: would it make sense if i said... Translucant means partially transparent( see-through). A translucant material would be a green glass bottle

DANIELLE: yes!! that's good! [h]

USER: Thankyou you've really helped me

DANIELLE: great! come back and ask more questions! see ya! [h]
