Colours of Light
Introduction

When sunlight passes through a raindrop, it is separated into individual colours and we see a beautiful rainbow. Within the rainbow are the three primary colours of light: red, green, and blue. By mixing these colours together, you can make any colour at all, including the secondary colours and white light.
Splitting white light
Light can behave as a wave. The different colours of light all travel at the same

Speed is a measure of how fast something is moving. It is calculated by dividing the distance travelled by the time taken.

frequency
In general, the frequency of an event describes how often it occurs. When talking about waves, the frequency is a measure of how many waves go past a fixed point in a given time.

Do different colours of light have the same frequency?
 
Yes
No
 


When light travels through glass, the different colours travel at slightly different speeds. Because of this, a glass prism can separate white light into all the colours of the rainbow.

Isaac Newton was the first person to do this experiment. Nature, however, did it long before him. Raindrops behave similarly to the prism and split sunlight to create rainbows. Although people often say there are seven colours in the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) there are actually many more. Newton decided on seven when he first split white light.

Newton also realized that the colours can be put back together again to make white light. He built a disc with seven coloured segments on it. Find out what happens when you spin it quickly.

Primary colours
Red, blue, and green are the three
primary colours
The primary colours of light are red, green, and blue. You can make any other colour of light by mixing together the right amounts of the primary colours. White light is made by mixing equal amounts of all three primary colours.

White light is made by combining all three primary colours.

Secondary colours
When two primary colours are mixed together, they form a secondary colour. The three
secondary colours
Secondary colours are made by choosing two of the primary colours and combining them equally. The three secondary colours are cyan, magenta, and yellow.
secondary colours
are: magenta (a pinky purple colour), yellow, and cyan (light blue). Use the torches on the right in Fig.4 to create secondary colours for yourself.

Now try mixing green and red.

Fill in the empty cell in the table with the secondary colour you get.
 




Finally, try mixing blue and green.

If two coloured lights combine to form white light, then they are known as complementary colours. For example, blue and yellow are complementary colours.

A trick of the light
Red, green, and blue are the primary colours, because these are in fact the only colours the human eye detects directly. We see all other colours as mixtures of these three. In fact, televisions and monitors only produce red, green, and blue light. They trick our eyes into seeing all other colours by mixing them together in the right proportions. One of the yellow beams in Fig.6 below comes from a yellow object. The other is a combination of primary colours which your eyes interpret as being yellow. Prisms however, can't be tricked as easily as our eyes. Use the prism to find out which light is which.

Summary

The primary colours are red, green, and blue.

The secondary colours are cyan, magenta, and yellow. They are made by combining two primary colours.

White light is made by combining all three primary colours, or by combining a colour and its complementary colour.
