Electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths between 400 nanometers and 750 nanometers. Electromagnetic radiation within this range can be detected by the human eye. Colors depend on the wavelength lengths; a short wavelength (the 400 nm side) looks blue and a long wavelength (the 750 nm side) looks red.
