Can you formulate what color a molecule will reflect or absorb if only 
given its molecular structure. i've asked many people this question, but 
they do not seem to know. I understand what light is, and about its 
frequency and everything, but as to why it is reflected by certain objects 
still remains a mystery to me. An answer and perhaps the formula would be 
appreciated. Even if unknown, please e-mail back.
