Asked by waliaman704 | 29th Jul, 2021, 06:57: PM
Newton began his experiments by making a small circular hole in one of the window shutters of his room at Cambridge.
Light from the sun streamed through this hole and made a circular white patch on the opposite wall.
On placing a triangular glass prism before the hole, an elongated coloured patch of light was formed on the wall.
Newton called this a spectrum, and noted that the colours formed were in the order Red, Orange, Yellow,
Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet .
