Simple Color Mixing

physics simulation

Instructions: Use the mouse or your finger to grab a circle by the little tab and move it around so that it overlaps with the others and creates a secondary color.
Explanation: There is quite a lot of physics involved with the mixing of colors. This simple sketch shows the elementary school version where we mix Yellow, Blue, and Red to make Green, Orange, and Purple.
