What is Color?Written by Robert Kennedy
What is Color? Color is light. Light is energy and travels in waves (according to theory) Light waves originate from a source such as sun, a light bulb, a fire, etc. In these sources of light, there are many different wavelengths. Wavelength is measured from crest to crest in nanometers (billionths of a meter) or in mill microns (Millionths of a millimeter). The human visible spectrum of color range is considered to be between 380 mill microns and 770 mill microns and is part of much larger electromagnetic spectrum.
Sir Isaac Newton established that a beam of "colorless" light passing through a prism is refracted or bent into separate bands of colors, in seventeenth century. These are known as colors of visible spectrum. Each color has its own wavelength. When all wavelengths are combined "white" light is produced. All individual and combinations of colors are inherent in white light. In nature this is seen as a rainbow.
HOW WE SEE COLOR In "white" or "colorless" light all visible colors are contained. With each perceived color light energy travels in waves having a dominant wave length which differs from wave length of any other perceived color.
Human eyes or vision acts as if it has "color receptors". One set of receptors is sensitive to red wave lengths of light, a second is receptive to green wave lengths, and third is sensitive to blue-violet wave lengths. When red and green receptors are stimulated we see yellow. The various colors of spectrum are seen depending on strength and mixture of wave lengths which strike our receptors.
