Additive colour: combining coloured light

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson  |  RAR

Shine different combinations of primary colors onto a white object. See if the color is different from what you would expect to be produced if mixing colored paints. For example, will combining red and blue light produce purple, magenta or white light? This learning object is one in a series of two learning objects. The series is also packaged as a combined learning object.

Students predict the result when additive colors are mixed.
Students explore the range of colors produced by combining different ratios of the three primary additive colors.
