Colour is Light and Light is Colour
The sun emits light at different frequencies. These frequencies can be separated by a process called refraction. When the light goes through a crystal prism, it refracts and divides into the seven colours of the spectrum. Each colour has its own frequency.
If the separated colours go through another prism they will form white light. The first person to demonstrate this phenomenon at the end of the 17th century was Isaac Newton, the great British physicist.
Colour Wavelengths and Frequencies
Energy is considered to travel in waves. The distance between successive waves is called wavelength and the number of times a wave oscillates in one second is called frequency. As per general rule: the longer the wavelength, the lower the frequency. Each colour has its own specific frequency and its individual wavelength. Only a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum is visible to the human eye.
Violet has the shortest wavelength while red has the longest.
Beyond violet lies ultraviolet which, although invisible to the human eye, can pass through our body. Ultraviolet provides us with a suntan and kills bacteria.
The longest wavelength at the other side of the spectrum is red. Beyond red lies infrared followed by microwaves, radar, radio and television wavelengths, all invisible to the human eye.
Red, orange and yellow, carrying longer wavelengths, seem to reach the eye faster than the colours on the other side of the spectrum. They are called warm colours as we associate them with fire and sunshine.
Green, blue and violet are perceived as cool colours. They travel in shorter wavelengths, so they seem to take longer to reach our eyes; they bring to mind the water of the sea and rivers, the sky, the winter dawn. They are also called receding colours, because of the long time their energy takes to reach our eyes.
Each warm colour has its complementary cool colour: red – blue, orange – indigo, yellow – violet, green – red (magenta).
