A great place to spend your birthday – Happy Birthday Dominic
We were able to investigate white light, testing the theory of Isaac Newton.
We found out that white light is a mixture of many different colours, each with a different frequency. White light can be split up into a spectrum of these colours using a prism.
Light is refracted when it enters the prism, and each colour is refracted by a different amount. This means that the light leaving the prism is spread out into its different colours, a process called dispersion.
We also created a colour wheel to create white light.
