In your physics class, you might have come across a solid glass object with identical ends and a flat face in a triangular shape. This object, which has the same cross-section across its length, is known as a prism. There are other variants in shapes and sizes, but this is one of the most common structures of the prism. A prism is used to break white light into multiple constituent spectral colors, that is, the seven colors of rainbows. Prisms are also used for refracting light and splitting it into multiple components with different polarization processes.
Do visit the MSVgo application to better understand the concept of refraction of light through a prism. For more information on this and other concepts, browse materials on MSVgo. On this application, you will find multiple informative sources for understanding concepts. This application has an extensive library of academic videos, essential notes, and test questions for students to learn efficiently.
