Caption: Spectrum. A spectrum of light on a black background, produced by refraction of sunlight through a prism. Sunlight consists of a mixture of wavelengths of light which together appear white. Although we are taught that the visible part of the spectrum consists of seven colours, there are in fact an infinite number of different wavelengths. The perception of discreet colours is simply a consequence of how the human brain distinguishes between some these wavelengths.
