What happens when light shines on a blue object?

Blue light is reflected, other colors are absorbed.


What color does a green leaf not absorb?

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.


Explain what happens to the different colors of light when white light shines on a violet object?

Red: absorbedOrange: absorbedYellow: absorbedGreen: absorbedBlue: absorbedIndigo: absorbedViolet: reflected


What happens to the different colors of light when white light shines on an opaque violet object?

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.


As pigments are added together what happens to the number of colors of light that are reflected?

Fewer colors of light are reflected and more aare absorbed


What colors of light do spinach leaves reflect?

Mostly green. The colors that we see are from light that is reflected, not absorbed.


What makes darker colors absorb more heat than lighter colors?

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.


Is light reflected or absorbed when it hits leafs?

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.


Why is the sun attracted to dark colors?

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.


Where the light is absorbed or reflected?

Absorbed Light: When light is absorbed we cannot see it. Reflected Light: When light is reflected, we can see it.


Why does color absorb light?

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.


What colors of the visible light spectrum are absorbed by white 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.


How does the result of mixing primary colors of pigments compare to the result of mixing the primary colors of light?

as pigments are added together, fewer colors of light are reflected and more are absorbed.


When light waves strike a red object what happens to the light waves of all colors except red?

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.


What colors reflect?

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.


Which colors of light are most effective for photosynthesis?

Why happens when light rays hits the green grass?

The green color is reflected and the other colors are absorbed


Which colors are absorbed by a red coat?

All of them.... except for whatever shade of red the coat is. That frequency of light is reflected into your eye.


Who made colors?

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.


What happens to white light when you are looking at a red strawberry?

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..


Is it the light absorbed or light reflected that initiates the light reactions of photosynthesis?
