Why do colors in fabrics appear different under fluroscent light?


In our daily lives,we often notice that the color of clothing as seen under fluorescent lights indoors looks different under sunlight outdoors. colors like red are much more pronounced in sunlight than under fluorescent lights. Do you know why this is so? Like sunlight, fluorescent light is also white light, and it is also made of many different wavelengths.

but the wavelengths in fluorescent light are different from those in sunlight. So, when these wavelengths are reflected to our eyes, we get the feeling that there is something a bit different about the color of our clothes.
