Question 1359

Would placing a blue filter on a Xerox machine prevent it from making copies, since blue light has more energy than red?
No. Blue light causes the photoconductor to conduct. When you use white light in a xerographic copier, it's the blue and green portions of the light that usually do the copying. The red is wasted.
