Absorption- takes place when light rays neither pass through nor bounce off an object but are absorbed by the object. Reflection- takes place when light rays strike a surface of an object and bounce back off the object. Transmission- takes place when light rays pass through an object. Refraction- takes place when light that is passing in an object is bent as it passes from one medium to another.
