Question:

Bubbles of colorless soap solution appear colored in sun bubbles of colorless soap. The solution appears colored in sunlight. Why?

Interference:

Wave interference is the process in which two waves propagating at opposite direction superimposes each other in order to form a resultant wave of greater or lower wave amplitude. The resultant wave produced is of greater amplitude if the two waves are in-phase while a resultant wave of lower amplitude is produced when the two waves are out-of-phase.

Answer and Explanation:

The bubbles of colorless soap solution appear colored in sunlight due to the interference of white light from the thin film of soap bubbles.
