WHITE LIGHT IS REFRACTED BY A TRIANGULAR PRISM<br />
Forming a spectrum of its component colors<br />
The light source passes through a slit that focuses the light to precisely hit the prism, refracting into a spectrum. The spectral dispersion of light through the prism is projected onto the background.
