- To know that white light is the addition of all colors of light.
- To illustrate the separation of light through a prism.
- To explain the selectivity of a L.A.S.E.R in terms of wavelength.
A ray of light passing between two surfaces of a transparent media is refracted according to the laws of refraction (Snell's law). The refractive index of a medium is the ratio of the speeds of…
