What happens to light when it gets dispersed? Give an example.

Answer :

When a light gets dispersed it is broken down into its constituent colours, the combination of which forms the light as whole.

For example, the sunlight consists of seven colours hence, when it is dispersed by allowing it to pass through a transparent prism it is broken down into the seven colours.
