1. The two apparatus that could be used is a diffraction gradient and a prism

2. For the prism - The wave properties of light are dispersion and recombination

For the diffraction gradient - The wave properties of light are destructive interference, diffraction and crest and troughs

3. For the prism, I couldn't find any mathematical calculations
For the diffraction gradient you can use lamda = xd/nl and lambda =dsin/n

For prism usually this equation is represented as the dependence of refraction angle w.r.t. wavelength, ##d\theta/d\lambda##. Open your optics textbook which discusses dispersion in prism and you will most likely find it.
