Is black a measurable color?
Debate Rounds (3)
I will argue in favor of the resolution that black is indeed not a color and indeed immeasurable.
How black is immeasurable
Let us use Newton's prism (Above) to break white light and study the various wavelengths of each color. Red, orange, etc. we can measure. Black? No. Black can not become any more "black" (As we perceive colors). And if we were to illuminate a room of darkness, even in the very least, it will no longer be black. It would be grey.
How black is not a color
Objects (Except for black ones) reflect their own color, while absorbing the other colors. Black does not reflect any color. It simply absorbs them.
The electromagnetic spectrum (Above) is the range of wavelengths and frequencies of electromagnetic radiation (Which it itself is energy transmitted). The wavelengths are the distances between two crests (Mountains). And depending on that, a color is there.
For instance, an electromagnetic radiation between 492 nanometers to 577 nanometers is green. That is reflected by plants because of its clorophyll molecules. And it absorbs every other color.
Why does it need wavelengths to be a color? It doesnt matter black is a color.
"Why does it need wavelengths to be a color? It doesnt matter black is a color."
For pigments, black is indeed a color. And in that case, white is not.
However, for this, it is not. Wavelengths, like said, are distances between two crests (Mountains) of an electromagnetic radiation. Depending on that, there is EVERY color.
So, that is energy transmitted.
For instance, A plant's clorophyll molecule reflects an electromagnetic radiation between 492 nanometers to 577 nanometers, however absorbs others, because that is green. Since, like said, black objects don't reflect any colors, therefore, it is the absence of the presences of the electromagnetic spectrum colors, therefore, it is not a color.
ok but pink is a color at least n*gga SUCK MY D*CK MOTHAFOCKA DIKNIGANIGANIGA
"ok but pink is a color at least"
However, that is not what we are arguing for and against. We are doing so over if black is a measurable color.
Also, pink is not a color.
At the very left is ultraviolet (Non-perceivable color when wavelengths (Distance between two crests (Mountains)) are less distant). At the very right is infrared (Non-perceivable color too).
Every object (Other than pink and black ones) reflect a color, and absorbs others. How? Depending on the distance between two crests, there is a color. For instance, a plant's clorophyll molecule reflects a green electromagnetic radiation (Above on the spectrum).
The electromagnetic spectrum does not consist of pink. Therefore, pink is the absence of the presence of the visible/electromagnetic spectrum colors. Therefore, it itself is not a color.
