\star\:\:{\sf{\underline{\orange{What \:is\: the\: dispersion\: of \:light\:?\:}}}} \\

  • Passing of white light through a glass prism which splits into spectrum of colours.
  • Those colours are to be said as VIBGYOR (violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange, red).
  • This process is called as dispersion of light

  • Dewdrops in morning (mostly in winter season)
  • Rainbow Formation
  • CD (compact disc)
  • Diamond
  • Oil fuel on road

\star\:\:{\sf{\underline{\purple{Additional\: Information\:}}}} \\

  • "Dispersion of light" phenomenon is given by Issac Newton.
  • Issac Newton conducted an experiment where he took a glass prism and passed white light rays through it.
  • Violet colour has the highest dispersion of light.

Red is the least deviated colour of light.
