Newtons Theory White Light is a composition of the primary colours mixed in a due proportion. White Light is a composition of the primary colours mixed in a due proportion. Nature of light: Light beams are composed of particles that explains a corpuscular theory of light instead of the ondulatory theory.

Hookes theory White light is fundamental and uncompounded and that colour results when white light is distorted by refraction. White light is fundamental and uncompounded and that colour results when white light is distorted by refraction. Nature of light: Light travelling in a medium represents a short vibrating motion that propagates in straight lines or rays. (waves rings on the surface of the water).

Our Opinions Our Opinions I think Newton is best because he talks about the composition of light from white light. I think Newton is best because he talks about the composition of light from white light. I dont think this because light that comes from the sun is only white and its only one colour. I dont think this because light that comes from the sun is only white and its only one colour. But the sun is not white it could be any colour like yellow. But the sun is not white it could be any colour like yellow.

I think that Newton is right because the experiment he did with the prism when a spectrum is produced, this resembles a rainbow. I think that Newton is right because the experiment he did with the prism when a spectrum is produced, this resembles a rainbow. I agree with this, there must be different colours as we can see them in the sun, rain.. I agree with this, there must be different colours as we can see them in the sun, rain..

But what about Hooke?? If Newton was right, light should have been made of particles but we know that particles have mass. But what about Hooke?? If Newton was right, light should have been made of particles but we know that particles have mass. Maybe youre right, Hooke proposed good ideas overall as we can see from our own life experience that waves are visible.

NewtonHooke Photons Waves Colour is nothing but disturbance of white light Light is heterogeneous, it consist of rays differently refrangible
