Molecular Expressions: Science, Optics & You - Light and Color:

Contains Molecular Expressions: Light and Color - Primary Subtractive Colors

This is an interactive Java tutorial that explores how color perception is affected by changing red/green/blue values and by hue, color saturation, and brightness.

relation by Caroline Hall
Contains Molecular Expressions: Light and Color - Color Separation

This is an interactive Java simulation that explores how the three primary subtractive colors can be added, along with black, to create four-color prints.

relation by Caroline Hall
Contains Molecular Expressions: Introduction to Lenses - Lens Shape

This item is an interactive Java simulation in which users control a slider to produce concave or convex lenses and explore how the lens shape affects the refraction of light through the surface.

relation by Bruce Mason
Contains Molecular Expressions: Light and Color - Introduction to Lenses

This item is an introductory tutorial on refractive and geometric properties of lenses, accompanied by multiple drawings illustrating various types of both convex and concave lenses.

relation by Bruce Mason
Contains Molecular Expressions: Science, Optics & You - Primary Subtractive Colors

This item is an interactive Java simulation that examines how the primary subtractive colors (also known as complementary colors) combine to form the primary additives, as well as black.
