Suppose you are told that only two colors of light (X and Y) are sent through a glass prism and that X is bent more than Y. Which color travels more slowly in the prism?

The one that is bent more travels slower.

If white light is sent through a prism, the colors on the other side of the prism from the entrance side are
red
orange
yellow
green
blue
violet
in that order; i.e., red at the top and violet at the bottom. Violet is bent the most; red is bent the least. So which is traveling faster?
