Artificial Light

  1. Jan 20, 2007 #1
    In artificial light, the colours of objects look different than in sunlight. Give the reason.
    1)Since the sun is yellow, daylight does not have light of all seven colours.
    2) Artificial light does not have all the wavelengths in the same proportion as sunlight.
    3) artificial light is not as bright as sunlight
    4)Our eyes are not as receptive to all wavelengths in the same proportion emitted by artificial source.

    I think the second option is correct!!
