Wavelength of VIBGYOR

We know that human eyes have color sensing capability but we don’t know the exact reason behind this concept. The main reason is, color is electromagnetic radiation that includes various light wavelengths. The observable region in the electromagnetic spectrum is called visible light. There are different categories of colors like VIBGYOR (Violet color, Indigo color, Blue, color, Green color, Yellow color, Orange color & red color). Electromagnetic radiation can be described through its frequency, wavelength, and intensity. As the wavelength is in the visible spectrum then it is called visible light. Most of the light sources produce light at different wavelengths. The spectrum of light source distributes its intensity at each wavelength. The color sensation can be determined by the light spectrum which arrives at the human eye.

What is the Wavelength of VIBGYOR?

The human eye detects the color in the range of wavelength from 400nm to 700nm which is called a visible spectrum or visible light. The outside of the light can be detected by other organisms however cannot be recognized by the human eye. There are different colors of light that correspond with narrow wavelength bands. These are clean spectral colors namely VIBGYOR.

The abbreviation of VIBGYOR is red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The white light is a combination of various colors where every color can be connected with a particular wavelength of light. For example, the blue light has a shorter wavelength compare with the red light. The deviation angle by a PRISM cannot be the same for all the colors of light. Thus the PRISM scatters white light into its ingredient colors.

What is Visible Spectrum?

The Visible spectrum can be defined as the visible area of the electromagnetic wave which is noticeable to human eyes. The range of visible spectrum in the electromagnetic spectrum ranges from the IR region to the UV region.

The light spectrum range can be detected from 400nm range to 700nm. So that the human eye cannot notice the remaining electromagnetic waves. We can notice these waves like rainbow colors where every color has a different wavelength.

Vibgyor Colours Wavelength and Frequency

The VIBGYOR color wavelength and frequency are shown in the following VIBGYOR wavelength chart show the order of wavelength as well as frequency.

The Wavelength of VIBGYOR in Angstroms

An Angstrom (Å) is 1/10,000,000,000 of a meter. The atom-like hydrogen measures approximately 1 angstrom across. The various kinds of lights wavelengths are frequently given in Å. The wavelength of an optical light includes 4500 Å to 7000 Å.

     Violet

4000 Å to 4240 Å

Blue

4240 Å – 4912 Å

Green

4912 Å – 5750 Å

Yellow

5750 Å – 5850 Å

Orange

5850 Å – 6470 Å

Thus, this is all about the wavelength of VIBGYOR. We know that the rainbow includes seven colors where the starting color is red and the ending color is violet. The order of these colors can be found in the acronym of VIBGYOR which stands for Violet Indigo Blue Green Yellow Orange Red. Here is a question for you, please mention the color which has the largest wavelength?
