    What is the color of light

    Many scientists have found out that light is a spectrum of many colors, hence there is no fixed color of light. Newton once displayed this with an experiment as he passed a beam of white light through a prism. The light split into seven colors which were Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red (or better known as VIBGYOR) just as it can be seen in a rainbow.
