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 »

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 »
