  • The Difference Between Reflected Light and Projected Light

    Posted on March 16th, 2011 Brian No comments

    Reflected light is composed of a certain percentage of each true primary colour (Yellow, Red and Dark Blue). If we consider a mid Green consisting of 50% Blue and 50% Yellow, the reflected energy is much less than the same area having all Yellow. It is also much more than the same area having all Blue.

    If you think of any pigment as a number of very small tiles each having its own colour, then if you only have Yellow tiles and Blue tiles to play with, your overall possible perceived colours are limited to all Yellow, all Blue or limited shades of Green. The maximum energy emitted from any area of the pigment would be if only Yellow tiles were used.

    If you have some White tiles you can have a lighter Yellow, a lighter Blue or an extended range of Greens i.e some lighter.

    If you have some Black tiles you can have a darker Yellow, a darker Blue or an extended range of Greens i.e some darker.

    With projected light it is more more complex. There are two different situations with projected light.

    Type 1. If you have source of ‘true’ Yellow light that shines through a series of small square holes separated by similar sizedĀ  small Blue filters., the resulting colour will be a light Green. This is because some of the Yellow light will pass through the Blue filter producing a dark Green. This dark Green, when added to the Yellow will create the light Green. In comparison with the coloured tiles in which we had Yellow and Blue tiles, we now have, in effect, Yellow and dark Green tiles. {See Colour Filters}

    Type 2. See Projected Light.

      I noticed that it’s hard to find your website in google, i found it on 18th spot, you should build some quality backlinks to rank it in google and increase traffic. I had the same problem with my website, your should search in google for – ********** – it helped me a lot.
      Why should you have to search for my website, its on page 1 of Google at number 4 (Out of 20,400,000), and why should I want to search Google for a SEO “expert” when I obviously don’t need one. (On Bing my website is at number 1 & 2 out of 8,000,000, also without the need of a SEO “expert”.) There are 10,000,000 claimed “expert” SEO companies on Google. There are not that many experts on the planet in all subjects (From Apiary to Zoology).
