Dear student

In theory, yes it must be possible to achieve dispersion even in the hollow prism because the air inside the hollow prism also has a wavelength-dependent refractive index. But, practically speaking, chromatic dispersion of air is way too less to achieve dispersion using a hollow prism practically!

I hope that helps!!
