Blue light is reflected, other colors are absorbed.
The color of anything is either the color of the light that is reflected from it, or the light that is transmitted through it. The other colors in white light are absorbed. So, since we see leaves as green whether in reflected light or when light shines through them, green is the color which is NOT absorbed.

White light contains all the wavelengths of the visible spectrum at equal intensity. The different colors of light, except violet, are absorbed when white light shines on an opaque violet object. The violet color is reflected.
Fewer colors of light are reflected and more aare absorbed
Mostly green. The colors that we see are from light that is reflected, not absorbed.
White light is a mixture of colors. When white light strikes a dark object little or no energy is reflected. When white light strikes a white object the energy is mostly reflected, not absorbed. Thus heat is absorbed by dark objects and reflected by light ones.
It is both absorbed and reflected. since light is made of: red,orange,yellow,green.blue,indigo,and violet all the colors except whatever color the leaf is, is absorbed and the color of the leaf reflected.
The question is a little off. Sunlight isn't 'attracted' to anything, in the sense that light 'wants to move toward' certain colors. But when light shines on objects of different colors, different parts of the light are reflected off of the objects and absorbed by the objects. An object that is close to a very pure white color will reflect most of the light that shines on it; an object that is close to a very pure black color will absorb most of the light that shines on it, and so will absorb more energy.
Absorbed Light: When light is absorbed we cannot see it. Reflected Light: When light is reflected, we can see it.
Colour does not absorb light: Rather, when light shines on objects, the colour that we see is the part of the light spectrum that is not absorbed (that is reflected) by the objects.
No colours are absorbed by white objects. White light is the combination of light of all wavelengths in the visible spectrum and since all wavelengths are reflected (perception of colour is based on reflected light), none are absorbed.
as pigments are added together, fewer colors of light are reflected and more are absorbed.
Basically three things can happen to light as it strikes an object. It can be reflected, absorbed, or it can pass through. For simplicity, assume the object is not transparent; in that case, any light that is not reflected is absorbed.
When light shines upon an object ALL colors are absorbed EXCEPT the color(s) reflected. For example, when sunlight reflects off a leaf, the leaf contains tiny yellow and blue tinted particles within the chlorophyll. This makes the leaf appear to be green.
Red color light spectrumRed-orange and blue-violetRed and blueGreen is reflected but all other colors are absorbed during phoyosynthesis.
Red and blue light is absorbed from the Sun. Green light is reflected off the plant.
Red is reflected. All the rest of the colors hitting the solution are absorbed.
The green color is reflected and the other colors are absorbed
All of them.... except for whatever shade of red the coat is. That frequency of light is reflected into your eye.
Colours are made by reflected lights. When light hits an object, the color you see is being reflected, the ones you don't are being absorbed. Example: you have a blue object, blue is being reflected while the other colours are absorbed. With a colour like green, blue and yellow are reflected as the others are absorbed.
White is not a color, it is all the colors. So when you look at something red, all colors but red are being absorbed and red is reflected. If it was black, then all colors would be absorbed. If it's white, then no colors are being absorbed..
