In white light various colors of light are mixed together, primarily blue yellow and red. When white light in air passes through a glass prism having a certain refractive index, all the differently colored lights have the same angle of incidence () but each differently colored light has a different emergent angle of refraction, going from red light (at the minimum angle) to blue light (having the maximum angle).
