Asked in Visible Light Spectrum
Which color has the shortest wavelength?
VIBGYOR is the abbreviation for the colors along the visible spectrum. Wavelength increases from left to right, so violet has the shortest wavelength. The shortest wavelength of visible light is the wavelength of the last color. In the visible spectrum violet/purple has the shortest wavelength. Beyond visible ultraviolet has the shortest.

What is difference between light rays and white light ray?
There's no such thing as a "white light ray". Every ray of visible light appears to your eye as some color, depending on its wavelength. When several light rays, with different wavelengths (different colors) and just the right combination of intensities, enter your eye together, you perceive the combination as 'white'.

Why do things have different color?
This answer is very scientific. You see, the only reason you see something is because light reflects off of it and into your eyes. Light in itself is what is call electromagnetic radiation. Light has what is called wavelength. this means that different wavelengths of light will have different properties. Simple right? Now, when light is in its basic form, it is all the wavelengths (colors) mixed together. However, when it hits some, a leaf for instance, some of those wavelengths (colors) are absorbed and some are reflected. When the light hits the leaf all the wavelengths (colors) but green are absorbed. The green light is reflected back into your eye, causing the leaf to appear green. --**Basicly**-- all things absorb some colors and reflect some colors. leaves absorb everything but green light, and that green light is reflected back into your eye. Things that are white reflect all of the colors, while things that are black absorb all the colors.

The wavelength of light changes as light goes from one medium to anotherwhile the frequency remains the sameIs the wavelength longer or shorter in water than in air?
The wavelength of light is shorter in water than in air. Consider this: Wavelength = (speed) / (frequency) Looking at this fraction, you can see that as long as frequency remains constant, wavelength changes in the same direction as speed of light in the medium. More speed = more wavelength etc. Another way to remember it: The frequency is the number of waves that pass you in a second. If the waves are all moving slower but the same number of them pass you in a second, then each one has to be shorter. Right ?

Asked in Physics
What occurs when beams of light of three primary colors are combined?
How does the electromagnetic spectrum change from on end to the other?
As you go farther right down the spectrum (radio waves, microwaves, infrared waves, visible light, ultraviolet light, x-rays, and gamma rays), the waves' wavelengths decrease as their frequencies decrease. For example, x-rays have a shorter wavelength and higher frequency than ultraviolet light. Radio waves on the left end have the longest wavelength and shortest frequency, while gamma rays on the right end have the shortest wavelength and highest frequency.

What are the primary colors of light and how are they different from the primary colors of pigment?
The primary colors of pigment are magenta, cyan, and yellow. Light is red, blue and green. You see, when you mix all of the colors of light you get white light, right? If you mix all of the colors of pigment you get a dark uglier color. I would like to add one more thing. I'm studying light and pigment in my class. Have you ever shone light into a prism and watched the colored light come back out? You can see the colors because the glass prism is denser than the air. The matter the light goes through is called the medium and if the light goes from a medium that is not very dense to one that is, the light diffracts. All of the colors of light diffract at a different angle. This is why we can see the colors. Also the reason we see color is because the wight light shines on the object and the object absorbs all of the colors except for the color the eye sees. Say you look at the grass and it appears green. The grass absorbs red, orange, yellow, blue, indigo, and purple. The grass reflects green light.

Is ultraviolet the shortest wavelength?
Asked in The Moon
Why does the sun looks reddish yellow in mornings and evenings why not in afternoons?
It is due to the phenomenon of atmospheric scattering of light. Explanation: First, it is important to know that of all the seven colors that make up white light, red has the maximum wavelength and violet (Also, indigo and blue) has the least wavelength. Now, imagine a big sphere to be our Earth and imagine yourself standing right on top of the Earth's surface (In this case a sphere). Now, during noon, the sun is overhead i.e., the distance needed to travel by the light from the sun to you is less. Thus, the color of least wavelength- blue( violet and indigo too, but blue has a higher frequency) gets scattered in the atmosphere and hence the sky appears blue in the noon. But, in the morning and evening, the sun is at a side. It is not right over your head. So, then the light needs to travel a longer distance. In such a condition, all the blue color gets scattered away and lose their brightness. The remaining colors are of the red family and hence the sky appears reddish- orange.
