Origin of Color
What is the origin of the color? What
is the physiology of human vision? When we see something, what exactly
it means? We need to go to some scientific experiments to find out
the answers of these questions.
It was Sir Isaac Newton who experimented with the colors and the
origin of the colors in 1666.
He concentrated on the nature of spectrum we find
in the rainbow for his experiment. He achieved the same spectrum
when he passed a beam of sunlight through a glass prism. Newton
named these colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and
violet. Another experiment was carried out by passing a spectrum
through glass prism. The output came in the form of white light.
The experiments were going on and the third was about the complementary
colors. With the help of two prisms he produced different colors
on the same spot having white background. The combinations of these
colors were producing the color, which lies between two source colors
in the spectrum. Isaac Newton came to some amazing conclusions after
