Question on Light

Postby UndeadCat » Thu Mar 24, 2016 3:53 pm

No project or job regarding this question, just curious:

If you were to point a colored light at a white object long enough would part of that object eventually become the color of the light? Ie. blue tinted light bulb, red laser pointer, etc. at white paper.

Hi UndeadCat,

You probably won't get your question answered on these particular forums. These forums are specifically for K-12 students, parents, and teachers working on science fair projects. So, a different set of online forums will be better able to help you.(That said, the short answer to your question is "no".)
All the best,
