Demo
The video that follows is a demonstration of how a glass prism bends and scatters white light into its seven constituent colours. The angle and shape of the prism can be varied as well as the refractive index of the glass itself. This means that a large combination of various parameters can be done in real time, a feat which is nearly if not totally impossible in conventional physics laboratories.
