In sickle-cell anemia, a minor variation in this chemi- cal compound causes it to change its form and distorts the shape of the blood cell to a sickle shape, hence the name sickle-cell anemia.

But we can try lo imagine its antics and then strain our brains to figure out whal happens when a beam light strikes a glass prism.

Each one of these tiny lengths is called "angstrom" and the wavelengths of light are mea- sured in. angstroms. Those thai we can see in rainbow colors range from to ang- strom units. The shortest ones are the violet blues in the range. Greens have long wave- lengths, the yellow and orange are still longer. The red rays have Ihe longest wavelengtlis in the angstrom range. A glass prism creates a rain- bow by bending the blended waveleugUis of a sunbeam at different angles. Its slopin; side bends (he shorter wave- lengths the most and the long- est ones the least. This sepa- rates them and fans them out in different directions. When they are separated from their invisible blend, they have lo show their true colors. And they must arrange themselves in a special order to match the different wavelengths. The shortest blue rays are sorted into their colored bands, then the greens, the yellow and orange tints. The reds appear at the opposite end from the blues, because their longest wavelengths are bent the Feast. Tins pattern is called the vis- ible spectrum. Its colored hands match those in the rain- bow because all light is a blend of the same wavelengths. Sometimes an oily puddle also separates the colors hidden in invisible light.
