CE Referring to Figure $26-52,$ which color, violet or red, travels more rapidly through water? Explain.

Hence when a beam of white light travels in water the red color travelsfaster than the violet color.

All right, So in this question and in the diagram, you clearly see one thing. We see that the red light is refracted less than the blue light. The blue light clearly has a greater angle over fraction. And so it has a higher index of refraction. It's refracted more through the medium of the water droplet. So we know that if we know that we can use the your fraction equation, we can say that the index of refraction and is equal to the speed of light in a vacuum over the speed of light through our medium. Right. So we say that if red light has a lower index of refraction, that means V must be greater since sees constant. So for red light, we have a lower index of refraction, so he must be greater for blue late. We have a greater index of a fraction. We must have a lower V. So the answer to our question ultimately is that red light travels faster
