- During or after the rain, water particles will be floating in the atmosphere which acts as a platform for the splitting of white light.
- Rainbows are usually seen on the opposite end of where the sun is located.
- In certain types of rainbows, not all colours can be seen distinctively and mainly yellow-green and red will be visible to the naked eye.
- The phenomenon of the rainbow can be studied even in laboratories with the artificial formation of the rainbow on a white screen.

Set 2 is helpful for students of Classes 6, 7 and 8.

- In the year 1994 on the 14th of March in England, the world’s longest rainbow was seen which lasted for more than 6 hours.
- A rainbow appears only when there are enough moist particles floating in the atmosphere and in the presence of sunshine.
- The altitude of the rainbow depends on the altitude of the sun and both of them are indirectly proportional.
- In many Civilizations, rainbows are considered to bring good to society and is a symbol of peace and harmony.
- Sometimes only red colour rainbows are formed in the sky and these are known as monochrome rainbows.
- Reflection, refraction and dispersion are the three phenomena that take place simultaneously to form a rainbow.
- Rainbows are an intangible phenomenon in the atmosphere which can only be seen but cannot be felt.
- VIBGYOR is the nickname given to all the colours that are seen in a rainbow which are violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.

Set 3 – 10 Lines on Rainbow for Higher Class Students
Set 3 is helpful for students of Classes 9, 10, 11, 12 and Competitive Exams.
- Rainbow is a meteorological process which involves reflection, refraction and dispersion of white light into water droplets.
- Alexander’s band is a phenomenon where Rainbow is seen over the dark sky, especially near waterfalls.
- Alexander’s band take place because the white light does not reach the human eye and is all absorbed into the water droplets lingering in the atmosphere.

- Isaac Newton, through his prism experiment, showed the world that the white colour splits into seven different colours and this is the logic behind the phenomenon of the rainbow.
- Rainbows are also produced at night and this is possible if the moonlight is strong enough to disperse through the water droplets.
- Rainbow, when looked on the ground, will be a half arc but if rainbows are looked on an aircraft, we can see the full circle of the rainbow.
- The white light that enters the water droplet bends and splits into seven different colours and the bending of these seven different colours depends on the wavelength of the light.
- Shortest wavelength starts from violet and the longest wavelength ends with the colour red and this is the reason why white light splits when it passes through dense water droplets forming a beautiful rainbow.
