Transcript of Prisms, Spectroscopy

Prisms A prism is a triangular piece of glass, this allows light to spread out into a band of six different colors. These colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and voliet. This is an example of a prism. They are made up of light which causes the colors because the main energy source is light, They are three-dimensional shaped. In a prism, light speed moves from one medium to another For instance, from air into the glass of the prism. This speed change causes light to refract, and enter at a new medium, at a different angle, different wavelengths of color leave the prism, called dispersion, making an effect like a rainbow. A beam of white light makes a spectrum of colors. The prism improves our society becuase, it helps us with our technology's, and also helps us invent new technology's, such as spectroscopy.
The prism doesn't harm our world in any way. Bibliography:
