More about Light speed in glass

Light travels at a constant speed in vaccum that is 3 x 10^8 m/s. But in media like air, glass, different wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum travel at different speeds. Refractive Index n is inversely proportional to wavelength of light. But refractive index = Speed of light in Vaccum/Speed of light in medium Hence, speed of light in media is directly proportional to wavelength. Since wavelength increases from Violet to Red so Red travels the fastest and violet travels the slowest.
