How is rainbow formed-01.jpg

  • After rain , there are many tiny droplets of water still in the air
  • When sunlight falls on these droplets
  • These droplets act as tiny prisms
  • When sunrays fall on these droplets, the rays get first refracted , then internally reflected and then refracted again
  • Due to this different colors of sunlight are bent at different angles and we are able to see a spectrum in the form of a rainbow
