Rainbow

Loading...

A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection , refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured arc . Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.

Today, Rainbow Play Systems has 600,000 structures installed worldwide. Rainbow is 1,800,000 children strong and growing stronger since they are already actively playing on their very own Rainbow®. Your child can be the next to blast off, rocketing to the moon. Tomorrow, your child will be the ringmaster in the center ring of the circus. Last week, they were pirates sailing the seven seas, searching for hidden treasures. With their imagination and a Rainbow® play system, there are no limits to where they can go.

Adult freshwater stream rainbow trout average between 1 and 5 lb (0.5 and 2.3 kg), while lake-dwelling and anadromous forms may reach 20 lb (9 kg). Coloration varies widely based on subspecies , forms and habitat . Adult fish are distinguished by a broad reddish stripe along the lateral line , from gills to the tail, which is most vivid in breeding males.

Wiki info

When sunlight encounters a raindrop, part of the light is reflected and the rest enters the raindrop. The light is refracted at the surface of the raindrop. When this light hits the back of the raindrop, some of it is reflected off the back. When the internally reflected light reaches the surface again, once more some is internally reflected and some is refracted as it exits the drop. (The light that reflects off the drop, exits from the back, or continues to bounce around inside the drop after the second encounter with the surface, is not relevant to the formation of the primary rainbow. ) The overall effect is that part of the incoming light is reflected back over the range of 0° to 42°, with the most intense light at 42°. This angle is independent of the size of the drop, but does depend on its refractive index. Seawater has a higher refractive index than rain water, so the radius of a "rainbow" in sea spray is smaller than a true rainbow. This is visible to the naked eye by a misalignment of these bows.
