Sun light:

This sun light is a wave of energy which is come to the earth by magnetic wave. The wave length is vast definition. The length of the light is so much different and some of the length is beyond of an eye can see. Basically human eye can see 350 nanometer to 700 nanometer we called it light.

The colors of the visible light spectrum

orange ~ 635–590 nm ~ 480–510 THz
yellow ~ 590–560 nm ~ 510–540 THz
green ~ 560–520 nm ~ 540–580 THz
cyan ~ 520–490 nm ~ 580–610 THz
blue ~ 490–450 nm ~ 610–670 THz
