A red colour jacket appear black in which light
Asked by padmapadapanigrahi | 27th Sep, 2018, 09:46: AM
- A band of Light is composed of varying wavelengths.
- Different wavelengths appear different colours to our eyes.
- By reflecting a green light on a red jacket, we actually use a filter to remove wavelengths of light that are not green.
- The filter works by stopping all non-green wavelengths, and allowing only green wavelengths to pass through.
- As a consequence, the only light to reach the eyes from the red jacket is green wavelengths.
- This green light is completely absorbed and not reflected by the red jacket.
- As a result, a small amount of visible light is reflected back to the eyes of the observer, creating a perception that the jacket is black.
