How many different colors are in a rainbow?Mohawk20 - 10 Answers
A rainbow contains all colors between infra-red and ultra-violet (the limits of human vision) except for brown (and white). If you could see a section of a rainbow very close up, you would see that all the colors blend together without any distinct border between them. Invisible infra-red merges into visible red, then into orange, then into yellow, then into green, then into blue, then into violet (purple), and finally disappears into invisible ultra-violet. At the distances we can see a rainbow, the rainbow is so thin that the colors appear to be separated into bands of the three primary colors, red, yellow and blue, separated by the secondary colors, orange, green and purple. Technically, the number of colors in a rainbow would be quite close to infinite. .
On a humorous note. Men only see the 6 or 7 basic colors. Women, on the other hand, see 6 or 7 million. Not only that, they have a name for each of them.
Strictly speaking, the color spectrum of a rainbow is continuous; it's just the human eye that perceives them as a set of distinct bands, due to the particular set of color receptors we have in our retinas.
The most commonly cited sequence of colors is (starting from the outermost arc): red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
Technically speaking there are only 7 different colors in the rainbow ROYGBIV if you will =) lol, but it also depends on which rainbow you're talking about! Sometimes on a real rainbow, depending on how much light hits it, not all the colors might show up.
Hope this helps!
The 7 colors of the Rainbow for all practical purposes are Red, Orange, Yellow ,Green, Blue, Indigo & Violet. To remember this use the phrase Richard Of York Great Battle In Vain. The first letter of each word in the phrase represents the first letter in each color. Good Luck....
There are seven colors in a rainbow. These are Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red. You can remember these colors by the word VIBGYOR, in which each letter corresponds with the first letter of a color. These colors are as follows:...
