When light pass thourgh the prism it give seven colour but glass not give seven colour why?


Question asked by: divy jain

Asked on: 19 Nov 2009

It is due to the shape of the glass in the prism that causes the splitting of light.

Light travelling at the different angle in the prism splits it into the different colours of light. However when going through normal glass this splitting of light does not happen and therefore you do not see the constituent colours.
