Teaching Material Of The Month

From the rainbow to the chemistry of colours

​Why does a rainbow appear to arch and how does it get three-dimensional? The project consists of two parts: The first part considers the construction of the apparatus and experiments required to explain the phenomenon of the rainbow. It starts with the analysis of white light passing through first a prismatic and then a cylindrical mass of water. This is followed by a demonstration of the paths followed by green and red laser beams through the same medium. Finally, two models demonstrate the passage of sunlight through a drop of water and a rainbow as seen in the sky.
