So, this came in my mind so suddenly i don't even know if it is true....
Even though i would like to ask you this question....

Suppose you have two different color, let it be red and blue....when mixing it, it turns out to be purple, right? So here is the question....
What happens at the molecular level for it to change color?? Does the wavelength of the light it emits change?? If yes how so??

If it is connected with light itself then i have a second question....
Suppose you are emitting light of two different colors with two different torches, and coincide the light reflected on the screen, Can we see the change in color??? What really happens to the wavelength by simply coinciding the two light??

Any comment on the question itself is appreciable!!!

The molecules of blue and red disperse fairly evenly in the paint, and because they don't absorb blue or red light waves the reflection of these light waves is also evenly dispersed and thus mixes... creating purple. Just like on a computer screen, there is no purple or orange pixel, they are a mix of the primary colour pixels.

Still same thing, the light waves will weave between eachother and mix. Get some transparent coloured plastic and move them into eachother, you will see the new colour emerge lol...

suddenly molecules change the composition and absorb all other colors and reflect one.
