How color of light is related with surface temperature?
Because,Blue is the hottest light/fire and Red is the less hottest light/fire the bluer the fire/light the hotter it is,The redder it gets,the less hotter it gets from the temperature. ...
Why are cooler stars red and hotter stars blue?
It may seem counter intuitive, but temperature defines the color of an object and the hotter an object is, the more its color will tend towards the left side of the color spectrum. As someone else said before on this site, thinking about heating a metal rod puts things in perspective. As you heat the rod, it glows red and than bluer in color as it heats up. Also, think about the hottest area of a flame--the flame is hotter at...

How does color indicate the temperature of a star?
because since its very hot the hotter it gets it starts to melt the color on the star. For Example blue stars. there the hottest star. ...

How does a star's color change as its temperature increases?
because when its temperature increases it changes color because the heat that its getting makes it change Star color changes as the temperature increases. This is because the hotter it gets the red it is. ...

How do scientist use the electromagnet spectrum to determine the temperature of a star?
Anything with heat emits electromagnetic radiation, even if it is only in the infrared (IR) wavelengths. As matter gets hotter, it tends to change color. For example, if you've ever seen glowing metal at a steel mill or in a blacksmith shop (like on a movie) you notice hot metal glows red, hotter metal glows yellow, and even hotter metal glows white. If you apply this concept to stars, you can start to see that by measuring the color, you are also...
