Default Defraction of light



Why white ray of light gets refracted in prism but not in plain mirror?

Default Re: Defraction of light

This is rather called diffraction. Light is also diffracted by a mirror, since if the mirror is small, the light diverges strongly. This is diffraction. Refraction can only be present, when the light penetrates a material what virtually not the case for a mirror, but there are surface effects, which can split colours, when a grating is ruled in the surface of the mirror
