Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Physics Interactives: Colored Filters

We'll supply the lasers and the filters and leave it to you to figure out how various filters interact with various colors of laser light. The filters will either block (absorb) the laser light or allow it to be transmitted (passed through).

Physics Interactives:  Filering Away

Looking at the world through a color filter will change the color appearance of objects. And lucky for you this can be done for FREE ... right here at The Physics Classroom. Take a peek, free of charge, at a set of six colored circles as seen through one of six filters.

Concept Builder: Color Filters

Our Concept Builders are always one of the best things that you can do to solidfy your learning. Explore the world of light and filters with this one.


Minds On Physics the App, Part 5, Light and Color Module, Missions LC8

If you want a Physics work out, then you will find it in our Minds On Physics apps. Purchase it for your phone or tablet and start lifting. Mission LC8 pertains to the topic of color subtraction and filters. Don't forget to use the textbook icon for help.


Physics Classroom Tutorial, Light Waves and Color Chapter, Lesson 2 - Color Subtraction

The Tutorial section of our website explains and illustrates Physics concepts in an easy-to-understand language and a logical manner. This page in particular will provide strong Tutorial support for the lesson in this video:
