1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1. Light can be separated into its component colors by: a. diffraction gratings b. thin film interference c. focusing a broad beam of light into a point d. bends light as it passes the edge of an object *e. both a and b 3. The attempt at a solution I thought the answer was c because it seems like what happens in a prism, but apparently (answer key) its e. Can someone explain why? Thanks!
