A description of the dispersion and recombination of white light by prisms with some historical detail. You can manipulate virtual prisms in and out of a white beam of light (shown as yellow).
PRISMS is an acronym which represents Physics Resources and Instructional Strategies for Motivating Students. This program seeks to make physics accessible to a greater number of students.
This colourful ray diagram shows the dispersion of white light by an equilateral triangle prism according to Snell's law. The angle of incidence and width of beam are variable.
Instructions on how to make a giant prism
In a rainbow or the separation of colors by a prism we see the continuous range of spectral colors (the visible spectrum).
