The SI & CGS unit of time is same .Why?

Almost in all systems of unit second is the unit of time, most probably because, second is the most convenient one, if we look at the guidelines for selecting a unit.

Why can’t we see through opaque objects?

Why can’t we see through opaque objects? What is the reason? (Kavya asked) Answer: When light falls on an object, a part of it is absorbed, another part transmitted and the rest reflected. Surfaces have different abilities for these. Substances which do not transmit any light are opaque.
