Color temperature

We usually describe what “white light” means by its “temperature”. This measures the temperature that a black body must reach to emit the light with that particular color.

Contrary to how we usually describe colors, yellow light has a much lower temperature (2700 K) than blue light (7000 K) and what we take for a white light bulb has a temperature around 4000 K.
