How is a Rainbow formed?
A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon and, as we all know, is very colourful. Appearing as an arc to the human eyes, the rainbow is the result of reflection, refraction, and dispersion of the light of the sun by the water droplets after a good spell of rain. This interaction gives rise to the creation of a multi-coloured arc.
