Question

A beam of light consisting of red, green and blue colours is incident on a right-angled prism. The refractive indices of the material of the prism for the above red, green and blue wavelengths are 1.39, 1.44 and 1.47 respectively. The prism will:

Solution

Correct option is

Separate part of the red colour from the green and blue colours

At face ABi = 0. So, r = 0, i.e., light will be incident on face AC at an angle of incidence 45o. The face AC will not transmit the light for which i >C

                 

So, red will be transmitted through face AC while green and blue will be reflected.
