Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Corin on Sunday, April 20, 2008 at 5:43pm.

I am confused as to how light would work in the following question:

Some very efficient streetlights contain sodium vapour under high pressure. They produce light that is mainly yellow with some red. Should a community having these lights buy dark blue police cars? Why or why not?

I'm guessing that the lights would make the cars look yellow???
