Light absorbed by glass

  1. Nov 10, 2015 #1
    How much or what percentage of visible light is absorbed by glass, and how much glass would it take to completely stop a laser beam in the visible spectrum?

    Have you looked at the wikipedia page for soda lime glass? It shows a typical transmission spectrum for said glass.

    A lot. Such a vague question can only have a vague answer.
