  1. 1. Color
  2. 2. Color <ul><li>Color is the visual effect that is caused by the spectral composition of the light emitted, transmitted, or reflected by objects. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Color originates in light. Sunlight, as we perceive it, looks colorless. In reality, all the colors of the spectrum are present in white light.
  4. 4. 1. All the&quot; invisible&quot; colors of sunlight shine on the apple.2. The surface of a red apple absorbs all the colored light rays, except for those corresponding to red, and reflects this color to the human eye.3. The eye receives the reflected red light and sends a message to the brain.
  5. 5. When light hits the surface, the BLUE paint ABSORBS all the light EXCEPT the blue part of the spectrum.
  6. 6. There is no pure blue.
  7. 7. . . .. .... . . ... .. . .. ... . .. .... . . . .. .... . . .. . .... . . .. . . .. ... . . .. .. . . . .. . .. .. . ... . . . . .. . .. . . . . . . . .. . . . .. . .. .. . ... . . . . .. . .. . . . . . . . .. . . . .. . .. .. . ... . . . . .. . .. . . . . . . . .. . . . .. . .. .. . ... . . . . .. . .. . . . . . . . .. . . . .. . .. .. . ... . . . . .. . .. . . . . . . .. . . . .. . .. .. . ... . . . . .. . .. . . . . . . If colored paints were actually pure color- every time any two “pure” colors of paint were mixed you would get black. The bits of blue in the blue paint would absorb the red and yellow light. The bits of yellow paint would absorb the red and blue light. No light would escape from the paint, and you’d see a perfectly black surface.
