Does critical angle depend on color of light? Explain.

of course yes.....!!!!! since critical angle depends on ref index wich in turn depends on wavelength.......critical angle depends on colour of light

 as you know critical angle depends on refractive index. The refractive index in turn depends on the phase velocity of that particular light. And phase velocities are different for different colours. So critical angle is related to color of light.

whom do i have 2 believe

  • -2
  1. no
  2. critical angle depends only on the angle of incidence and refractive index of the medium

i think it depends on the colour of light bcoz it depends on the refractive index then it wil depend on the wavelength  thus on the color also ..but im not sure
