This applet allows users to investigate the behavior of light through a prism. The light source is a dual wavelength source. The user can change the light direction, and position, and the shape of the prism. Furthermore, the user can change the indices of refraction of the prism and its surroundings. The relative intensity for each of the reflected or refracted beams is shown.
Please note that this resource requires
Java Applet Plug-in.
