What’s Covered

> The order of the seven colours of the spectrum

> During dispersion, red light is refracted the least and violet light the most.

> Dispersion is caused by the fact that each colour of light travels at a different speed in glass.

> Red, green and blue are primary light colors.

> Magenta, cyan and yellow are secondary light colors.
