Does blue light or orange light have a larger index of refraction?
Blue light is bent more by a prism than orange light. Does blue light or orange light have a larger index of refraction in glass?


A. Blue
B. Orange

If you know the answer to this, could you also explain why? Looking at a picture of the EM spectrum doesn't seem to be helping me much.
