What Determines the Color of Light?

Answer

The color of light we see is determined by the wavelength of radiation. Each color has its own wavelength. There are ranges on the high and low side that humans can not see, such as infrared and microwave on the low side and ultrviolet and gamma rays on the high side. Everything in between are the colors we can see.
