All else held equal, which has more energy: a violet-painted teacup or a red-painted teacup?
I know that violet light has more energy than red light, but does this mean that the inverse holds true for painted things? Does red paint necessarily hold more energy than violet paint? Or is the reflective property not related to energy in any way?
I understand that electron energy levels have to do with the color of light emitted, but is there a correlation between the total energy in the material and the color that it reflects?
