Light Experiments
Colour Spectum
By refracting light through a prism he discovered that light is made up of a whole spectrum of colours.
Refracting Telescope
The Refracting telescope formed images by using lenses to bend light. he also made a telescope with mirrors this resulted in much higher quality.
This came later.
What did these light experiments prove
The refracting light through a prism is made up of a whole spectrum of colours. Newtons refracting telescope avoided his problem by using mirrors to reflect light.
The Visible Spectrum
The visible spectrum is the portion of the
electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the human eye. Electromagnetic radiation in this range of wavelengths is called visible light or simply light.
