 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
Light is scattered by molecules of air, dust particles and water vaporous present in the ____ this scattering is inversely proportional to wavelength of light.
 A Atmoshpere B clouds C Liquid D Dust
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Rayleighâ€™s law of scattering: According to Rayleighâ€™s law of scattering, the intensity of light of wavelength present in the scattered light is inversely proportional to the fourth power of , provided the size of the scattering particles is much smaller than .

Detailed explanation-2: -The probability for scattering will give a high rise for a shorter wavelength, and it is inversely proportional to the fourth power of the radiation wavelength.

Detailed explanation-3: -During scattering of light, the amount of scattering is inversely proportional to of wavelength of light.

Detailed explanation-4: -The intensity of scattered is found to be inversely proportional to the fourth power of wavelength of light. This relation holds when the size of air molecules is much smaller than the wavelength of the light incident.

Detailed explanation-5: -Amount of scattering of light is directly proportional to fourth power of its wavelength.
