How is Moon reflects light from the Sun?

it sounds strange, when stated that way but, 'reflected', here does not mean as a mirror's reflection... anything that you see is reflecting light, and the color you perceive is the wavelengths of light that are being reflected (the colors you do not see have been absorbed by the object's surface...) The colors of the spectrum, or rainbow, when all seen together are perceived as white light Conversely, when you see no colors (all wavelengths being absorbed) you see black... So... the white light, or color of the moon is all colors being reflected


How is a rainbow produced?

A rainbow forms when there is water in the air and the sun reflects off of this water. When the sun shines through some rain the light from the sun is broken up into it's spectrographic colors. Normal light is invisible to us but we see the effects as light allows us to see things. The things we all see are always some color, yes black and white are colors. Why? Because light is made up of every color you can think of. When you see a red car that is because the car's paint absorbs all of the light EXCEPT the red which is reflected back to you eyes. So all the colors we see in life are just reflections of those colors while all the other colors are being absorbed by the object we are viewing. So when the sunlight shines through the rain the rain acts like a prism and filters or breaks the light into it's various individual colors that we see. Generally we see it as Roy G. Biv. or Red Orange Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Roy G. Biv is a good way to remember the colors that one sees. We call the colors the are visible from a rainbow a spectrum of colors.


Does amount of light affect the way a plant grows?

yes


Why does the violet light split into different colors when it passes through the prism?

Violet light does not split into different colors when it passes through a prism.If it goes in violet, it comes out violet.White light is a combination of light of many colors. If you pass white light througha prism, a spread of different colors will come out of the prism, because each colorbends through a slightly different angle on its way through the prism.


Does different color light affect the way plants grow?

ultra violet light is all it needs

How white light produced different colors?

White light doesn't produce different colors. The only way to make white light is tocombine light with all of the different colors. So if you already have white light, allof the colors are already there. You only have to separate them in order to see them.


How do colours come from white light?

It's the other way round - white light comes from combining all sorts of colors. White light is just a mixture of all colors. We see colors from white light because we can separate diffirent wavelenghts (via a prism, for example). That's also why we see a rainbow - white light refracts on drops of water, under a specific angle - working as a prism - thus we see a spectrum of colors.

What causes the different colors in the spectrum?

Visible light contains all of the colors with in the spectrum. The only way we see color is the bending and refraction of the visible light sending certain wave lengths back, which our brain interprets as different colors.


Do colors affect your emotions?

yes colour does affect our emotions and the way we behave :)


How do humans see colors based on the wavelength of light?

When wavelengths composed of white light are interfered with by matter on their way to our eyes, or when a non-white distribution of light has been emitted.

What colors can fruit flies see?

Fruit flies do not see colors in the way that humans do. They have specialize vision that allows them to see shades but not colors directly.


Does the color of your eye affect the way you see?

Yes. Different pigmentations affect the way you see, how you see, and sometimes "why" you see the stuff you see.


Is Black all colors or no colors?

Black would be no colours. the way we see things, is that light bounces off a surface, and into our eyes. The colour of the surface decides the colour of the light that is bounced into our eyes, and allows us to tell what colour it is. If there either isn't any light, or nothing that bounces in our direction, then we'll see the absence of light as black.


Why do light colors absorb less heat than dark colors?

Colors that appear light appear that way because they absorb less of the incident light, and reflect more of it to you.Colors that appear dark appear that way because they absorb more of the incident light, and reflect less of it to you.


How does light become colors?

When you say 'Light' you probably mean, 'White light'. White light, or just plain old light, say, from the Sun, is composed of light of all the different visible colors. Light can be separated out into all the colors that are in it by using a prism or by reflecting the light off of tiny water droplets in the sky (creating a rainbow). The weirdest way to split light into its colors that I have ever seen is caused by light bouncing back from the tiny glass balls that are spread on wet traffic-stripe paint. It is really strange to see "rainbows" on the street!
