Color adds beauty to our lives and helps us express our deepest feelings, but what exactly is it? This video lays out the scientific principles at the heart of that question, examining the relationship between light and color, the physical and chemical properties that create it, and the ways in which humans and animals perceive it. Viewers are shown how light can be broken down into component colors-or, more accurately, wavelengths-and are given simple demonstrations that clarify important concepts. These include paint mixing studies, electricity and magnetism experiments, and computerized diagrams that show how various energy wavelengths correspond to specific colors and color ranges. A fascinating introduction to light, its effects, and how it colors our world!
