Question

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

C
separate all the three colours from one another

D
not separate the three colours at all

Solution

The correct option is A separate the red colour from the green and blue colours
μ=1sin ic=1sin 45°=2=1.414μred=1.39<μμblue>μμgreen>μ
Since μ of green and violet are greater than 1.414 so they will suffer total internal reflection. Only red colour does not suffer total internal reflection
