Textbook Problem

Suppose a feather appears green but has no green pigment. Explain in terms of diffraction.

To determine

Why a feather appears green even though it has no green pigment.

Explanation

Introduction:

Diffraction is the process of bending of light around the edges of an obstacle.

Even though a feather has no green pigment it appears as green due to diffraction. Feathers look like a diffraction grating. So, when white light is incident on feathers, diffraction occurs and different colors are diffracted at different angles. Depending on the angle of diffraction for each wavelength, the path difference will be different...
