Prism dispersing light into spectrum. Prism demonstrating refraction and reflection effects. A beam of white light (top right) strikes the prism and is dispersed onto the opposite face. At this face, some of the light is refracted again, exiting the prism and forming the spectrum (lower left). The spectrum is a result of the different amounts of refraction of the different wavelengths of light present.
