The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of wavelengths and frequencies over electromagnetic radiation. The wavelength of one is the distance between 2 crests. Depending on that, the electromagnetic radiation is coloured.

Electromagnetic radiation is energy, which is transmitted. Without them, our world would not be coloured.

It originated from the Rainbow. The Sunlight (White, in particular) is composed of all colors. It transmits some electromagnetic radiation with a variety of wavelengths. Each rain droplet reflects one, causing a Rainbow to appear.


So, if all colors are absorbed instead, what color will be an object? Pink? Black? Since both aren't colors, what does an object depend on to become either pink or black?

Colors are how our brains interpret those waves, in reality there are no colors, there are simply those waves with different characteristic aka "frequencies".

It would be Black.

Black is the absence of color or light. If something is absorbing all light and reflecting no frequencies back at you, then thats black.

Pink is also considered not a color by some, but not in the same way. Pink is not real in that it shouldn't be able to exist, because its a combination of colors that are diametrically opposed and therefore shouldn't be able to be a frequency. Technically if there was a middle between Red and Violet, which Pink supposedly is, it should be green. Some scientists disagree with this by the way, and maintain that pink still is a color. Regardless though, Pink is just a paradoxical color, not a null color.
