How does it work
Light slows slightly as it moves from the air into the Light Crystal Prism, and changes direction (this is called refraction). Conversely light speeds up and bends as it leaves the acrylic prism and re-enters the air. The degree of light bending in and out of the prism depends on its wavelength, or colour. Blue light slows more than red light, thus is bent more. This differential bending causes light to disperse into its component colours and make a rainbow.
It takes a bit of patience and adjusting of the crystal to form a rainbow. The conditions (the room brightness and shade of the reflecting wall) have to be just right to form a bright spectrum. Which is half the fun (& oter half the frustration lol).
- Allows exploration of light & colour properties
- How light is composed of different wavelengths and colours
- Demonstrates the rainbow spectrum
- Shows how light travels in different mediums.
