# Question: Which color has the highest energy?

Contents

Your eyes detect electromagnetic waves that are roughly the size of a virus. Your brain interprets the various energies of visible light as different colors, ranging from red to violet. Red has the lowest energy and violet the highest.

## Which color has the highest energy Why?

violet Because violet waves have the shortest wavelength of the visible light spectrum, they carry the most energy.

## Which color has the most energy?

violet When it comes to visible light, the highest frequency color, which is violet, also has the most energy. The lowest frequency of visible light, which is red, has the least energy.

## Which colour is refracted the least?

red light The shorter the wavelength of the light, the more it is refracted. As a result, red light is refracted the least and violet light is refracted the most - causing the coloured light to spread out to form a spectrum.

## Which color has the lowest speed?

Violet Violet travels the slowest so it is on the bottom and red travels the fastest so is on the top. This is because what is called the index of refraction, (the ratio of the speed of light in a vacuum to the speed of light in a material), is increased for the slower moving waves (i.e. violet).

## What color do humans see best?

color green In the middle of the spectrum resides the color green, at around 555 nanometers. This wavelength is where our perception is at its best.

## What is the slowest color?

Violet Because the colors of light travel at different speeds, they get bent by different amounts and come out all spread out instead of mixed up. Violet travels the slowest so it is on the bottom and red travels the fastest so is on the top.

## What color is the least bent?

red light Since violet light has a shorter wavelength, it is slowed more than the longer wavelengths of red light. Consequently, violet light is bent the most while red light is bent the least. This separtion of white light into its individual colors is known as dispersion of light.

## Which Colour is refracted the least?

red light The shorter the wavelength of the light, the more it is refracted. As a result, red light is refracted the least and violet light is refracted the most - causing the coloured light to spread out to form a spectrum.
