    $\begingroup$ short answer: rapidtables.com/web/color/Yellow_Color.htm longer answer: yellow is a lot of red+green and little blue $\endgroup$ – Bort Jan 14 '16 at 11:16
  • $\begingroup$ i know but lets say ,, a yellow color is reflected from a object as specific wavelength and that wave hits the a blue pixel in the filter only a blue, it wont let it pass and is this the case or i understand it all wrong ? $\endgroup$ – user3550045 Jan 14 '16 at 11:21

    $\begingroup$ neither real-life objects nor the filter-pixels are monochromatic (i.e. using a single-wavelength). Theres always a spectrum involved and the output is then related to the "overlap" of those $\endgroup$ – Bort Jan 14 '16 at 11:23
  • $\begingroup$ i don't get it ,,, could you explane the filtering process in detailed way ,,, ? $\endgroup$ – user3550045 Jan 14 '16 at 11:28

You get some transmission of yellow through all three filters .

  • $\begingroup$ Yes , i found that the yellow is green and red not in signal wavelength but is actually tow wave length ... $\endgroup$ – user3550045 Jan 15 '16 at 5:23
