The color of temperature
Have you ever heard or used the expression, "red hot"? You've probably heard (perhaps in art class) that colors on the left end of the visible light spectrum (red, orange, yellow) referred to as warm colors, while those on the right side of the visible light spectrum (green, blue, violet) referred to as cool colors. But, do our observations in the world of science match our observations in the world of everyday living?
Begin by writing down at least five things that you use every day that are or would be hot to the touch. What color are they?
