Chlorophyll viewed with red light?


Recommended Posts

I'm stuck on this question..I understand that the red and blue lights are mostly absorbed in chlorophyll whereas the green light is poorly, resulting in the dominance of green light. So, red light being a low level light would result in a chlorophyll extract to appear grey because we lose colour perception. Is this in any way correct?

I think it is. its a pigment that reflects the green light and therefore appears green when viewed under all wavelengths. but if there is only red light, i think chlorophyll would appear gray since red is absorbed.
