Thus the red is on the outside of the primary rainbow. The secondary rainbow is formed by rays that have twice undergone total internal reflection within the raindrops, and the colours are seen in reverse order: violet is on the outside of the bow.

In the Prentice position one surface of the prism is normal to the ray of light so that all the deviation takes place at the other surface of the prism (Fig. 4). Fig. 4 The Prentice position of a prism. The deviation of light in the Prentice position is greater than that in the position of minimum deviation, because in the Prentice position the angle of incidence does not equal the angle of emergence. Therefore the Prentice position power of any prism is greater than its power in the position of minimum deviation.
