The Science Behind Rainbow Colors

image credit

When you shine a flashlight creating a beam of white light, within that beam all the colors of the rainbow exist. That simple white beam of light is actually a combination of purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red colored beams.

If you take that beam of white light and send it through a glass prism, the different colors will show themselves vividly as they exit at a different angle. Rainbows are created in a similar manner.
