2.2 Red and Green = Yellow
2.3 Green and Blue = Cyan
2.4 Cyan and Magenta = White
2.5 Magenta and Yellow = White
2.6 Yellow and Cyan = White
2.7 Cyan and Blue = Cyan
2.8 Red and Magenta = Magenta
2.9 Yellow and Green = Yellow
2.10 Red and Yellow = Yellow
2.11 Blue and Magenta = Magenta
2.12 Green and Cyan = Cyan
3 White Light is NOT just a single colour
3.1 Made of a mixture of colours (Spectrum)
4 Filters
4.1 Filters only let one colour of light go through it.
4.1.1 All other colours absorbed (Don't go through)
4.2 A Red filter absorbs all colours (Orange, Yellow, Green etc.) apart from Red.
4.3 A Blue filter followed by a Red filter will not show any light.
4.3.1 This is bacause, the Blue filter only absorbs Blue and then there is no Red in Blue for the Red filter to let through.
4.4 A Magenta filter followed by a Red filter will show red light.
4.4.1 This is because, the Magenta filter shows Red and Blue light and then the Red filter absorbs the Blue but lets through the Red.
