What is white fire called?

Incandescence is the emission of light as a function of temperature (black-body radiation). From coolest to hottest, incandescent flame colors are red, orange, yellow, and white. Incandenscence begins to become visible as a dark red glow between 500 and 600 °C and reaches a white flame around 1400 to 1600 °C.

What is the most powerful fire color?

violet

What is the coldest flame color?

red

What color is lowest in energy?

Red

Which color of light bends the most?

violet light

What are the 12 colors of the spectrum called?

The division used by Isaac Newton, in his color wheel, was: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet; a mnemonic for this order is "Roy G. Biv". Less commonly, "VIBGYOR" is also used for the reverse order. In modern divisions of the spectrum, indigo is often omitted.

What is the highest frequency possible?

Gamma rays

Why can humans only see visible light?

The reason that the human eye can see the spectrum is because those specific wavelengths stimulate the retina in the human eye. ... If we move beyond the visible light region toward longer wavelengths, we enter the infrared region; if we move toward shorter wavelengths, we enter the ultraviolet region.

How far can a human see another human?

about 3 miles

What if we could see all wavelengths of light?

Ultimately, if you could see all wavelengths simultaneously, there would be so much light bouncing about that you wouldn't see anything. Or rather, you would see everything and nothing simultaneously. The excess of light would just leave everything in a senseless glow.

Can human eye see UV light?

The human retina is sensitive to the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum down to about 300 nanometres, but the lens of the eye filters it out. ... But people born without a lens, or who have a lens removed and not replaced, sometimes report seeing ultraviolet as a whitish-violet light.

What light is invisible to the human eye?

Visible light has wavelengths ranging from about 400 nanometers to 700 nanometers. Wavelengths shorter than 400 nm, or longer than 700 nm, are invisible to the human eye.
