Energy in Light

A prism divides white light into a rainbow of colors (frequencies) that are independent of each other.

A prism divides white light into its components. The total energy of the white light is not equal to the sum of the energies of each color in this rainbow as currently assumed when calculating the thermal effects of greenhouse gases. Instead, white light simply contains some of each frequency (energy).
