# White light is broken down into what colors?

Oct 23, 2017

white light splits into color(red)(VIBGYOR

#### Explanation:

white light disperses when seen through a glass or prism into 7 colors known as visible spectrum or color(red)(VIBGYOR where

• V=violet
• I=indigo
• B=blue
• G=green
• Y=yellow
• O=orange
• R=red
These colors are the only part of the entire electromagnetic spectrum which is visible to the naked eye. it looks somewhat like this.
TRENDS:
1.$\nu =$frequency is high for the color violet and keeps reducing till it comes to red.
• $\lambda =$ wavelength is really low for violet and keeps increasing till it comes to red.
3.refractive index(n)=it is high for violet and decreases down till red
• ${i}_{c}$=critical angle is really low for violet and increases till red
