# Useful Color Equations

The following table contains links to mathematical equations for converting among various colorimetric representations.
Implementations of these may be found in the Calculators and Spreadsheets section of my site. You can see from this table
that some color conversions may be accomplished by single steps, while others may require several intermediate steps to reach the
final goal.
