Does anyone have an understanding of how sunlight works?
Tell me if I am wrong.
The sunlight travels in waves.
The length of the waves is how the eye sees color, the rainbow effect.
Everything in the universe vibrates at different wave lengths. Like heat has wave lengths is the reason ultraviolet light goggles work. (Wavelength is inversely proportional to the wave frequency) off the web.
Sunlight contains the spectrum of visible light.
So, a ray of sunlight hits a leaf on the tree. Sunlight hits that leaf and the light that is the same wave of the leaf is absorbed into the leaf.
Sunlight that is of a different wave length is reflected away.
Question; is the leaf really red in color and what we are looking at is the color the leaf is not? The waves that cannot penetrate and are reflected away and that is what enters the eye.
So, if that is the case then if we change the light source then the color of objects should change, for example using a black light or colored lights. It seems to work.
So are tree leafs really red and we are seeing the colors things are not?
