Newton’s colour Disc

Newton demonstrated by his colour disc, the recombination of seven colours to produce white light. He took a circular cardboard disc and divided it into seven sectors. He painted all the seven colours(violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red) of white light. The disc appeared white when it was rotated at a high speed. Newton thus proved that white light consists of seven colours.
