Most students spend a big fraction of their study time preparing themselves for answering questions – for examinations. This becomes all the more important when a student writes a competitive examination such as the IIT entrance.

When a white light passes through a prism, it gets dispersed into various colors according to its wavelengths. This phenomenon is easily seen in a rainbow or when you use a simple prism like a ruler in front of sunlight. The principle of dispersion of light is applied in spectroscopy to study many phenomenons and topics in Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy and many other disciplines.  Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation (light).
