How Is Black Created?

Black is created when there is no color at all. Sounds strange but think of it this way, when there is no light, everything is black. And because light is made up of color, by removing the light you remove the color. So when black is created, all color is removed. Likewise, when you mix all of the colors together, you create white!

Black Hex Code

Hex codes are used to specify how much color is contained within a specific shade and are displayed in the following format #RRGGBB. Hex codes use the letters A-F and the numbers 0-9 to specify how much color is contained within the color with F meaning that the color is completely saturated and 0 meaning that the color isn’t used at all.

The black hex code is #000000.

From black’s hex code, you can see that it contains no red, green, or blue in its color code.

Black RGB Code

Just like the black hex codes, the RGB code also specifies how much red, green, and blue are contained within a specific color. RGB codes are displayed in the following format RGB(RR,GG,BB).

The Black RGB Code is RGB(0,0,0,).
