wavelengths as it passes through a triangular prism Which color

00:24

written here in terms of frequency will deviate most from

00:28

the original path of light And here the potential answers

00:32

a lot of prisons Well they let us turn regular

00:37

old white light into a rainbow whenever we want It

00:40

always amazes us that white light actually contains all of

00:42

those colors and we know we're easily entertained But hey

00:46

we're a cheap date bias a slim jim and make

00:48

a pretty rainbow and we're happy for however long it

00:50

takes us to eat that slim jim a prison works

00:53

because light slows down is it passes through the glass

00:57

and the angle of the prism makes the light bends

01:01

But the amount of ben varies depending on the frequency

01:04

and the wavelength of the light Well a higher frequency

01:07

means the index of refraction is also higher so there's

01:10

more bend in the angle so answer a has the

01:13

highest frequency so it would have the most deviation and

01:18

it would also be the correct answer Seven hundred terror

01:21

hurts is the frequency of violent light by the way

01:24

and five hundred twenty terror hurts produces yellow light Working

01:28

our way down to the are in roy g biv

01:31

There we go Red light has a frequency of four

01:34

hundred twenty Terror hurts give or take But remember if

01:37

you play around with prisms a lot short little irish

01:40

guys might start showing up and unless you have a

01:43

pot of gold line around well they might not be 00:01:45.572 --> [endTime] very happy with you What
