Black is not considered a color, as it is the absence of color. In physics, color is based on wavelengths, and with black there is no wavelength. In the visible spectrum of light, black absorbs light, creating an absence... More » Science Colors

When used for printing purposes, the color black is made by combining cyan (a color halfway between green and blue on the color wheel), magenta and yellow. Cyan, magenta and yellow are created when red, green and blue ar... More »

The only way to create black by mixing colors is to combine the primary colors together. To do this with two colors, one may use one of three combinations, hues of yellow and purple, hues of orange and blue or hues of gr... More »

According to the Additive Color Theory, white is a color and black is the absence of color. The theory states that white is a combination of many colors, and is produced by combining primary colors red, green and blue li... More »

Black is, by definition, the absence of color. Color is determined when the human eye absorbs the wavelengths of visible light, and an object that is truly black is an object that does not reflect light, so there is no l... More »

The color black is perceived when light is entirely absent, leaving no color refraction and causing the viewer to see a total lack of color. Most pigments or dyes that make materials black function by absorbing all of th... More » Science Colors

In theory, mixing all colors in equal proportions would produce black, using the subtractive method of color combination. In the additive method, the same approach produces white. More »
