Single filter emission tool. Set the lamp light to 1.0 for Red, Blue and Green, then observe what color light passes through the filter.

Electromagnetic spectrum - colors of visible light and corresponding wavelengths, in nm

Absorption spectra of chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b. What colors correspond to the wavelengths at which chlorophyll a and b exhibit peak absorption?
