Does anyone understand the physics of why the air temperature measured when different wavelengths of light cast by a refracting prism vary? My son investigated this for his science fair project this year (4th grade) and I honestly don’t understand the reasons why this happens. If you have ideas on this, please leave a comment here, on the post he left over on Learning Signs, or on the VoiceThread he created explaining his project and his conclusions.
