Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0730 nm is red . and i cant find magenta on the spectrum

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I'm saying you decide what color is closest to your concept of magenta on the spectrum, and say that's he wavelength. But you might be asking a different question: is there some sort of standard definition of magenta? Then the best thing to do is use a Pantone color: Pantone has a large number of standardized colors.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am alluding to the fact that magenta light is not monochromatic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Magenta is Red AND Blue, so i guess it has two wavelengths
