What is the order of colors in a rainbow? And do they always follow the same pattern?
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. We were taught to remember them by using "Roy G Biv" as a trick for recalling the order. Yes, these are the colors as they appear in light spectrums.
The colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. You can remember it with the mnemonic device Roy G. Biv made from the first letter of the colors.
The color order is always the same, but each rainbow is different. You may not see all the colors and in some cases the bands of colors could be different sizes. It all depends on how the light is bent. One color could have a much wider band than the others.
Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red is the order of colors in a rainbow and they always follow the same pattern. This is because colorless or white light is an illusion when all these seven colors mix to form it.
White light or natural light is compound of 7 colours and when that light is passed through a prism or any refractive surface it can be viewed as violet , indigo , blue , green , yellow , orange and red (VIBGYOR ). These colours specifically as they lie in the wavelength (400 - about 800 thz ) and are visible to the naked eye . You also have infra red and ultraviolet adjacent to red and violet respectively which are not visible to the naked eye !
