1. what is Tyndall effect ? plz explain it in more detail way ....!

2. which of the following would show the Tyndall effect ?
a) milk
b) Sulphur solution
c) salt solution
d) CuSO₄ solution
after writing the correct option please explain why does it show's the tyndall effect ..!
The Tyndall effect, also known as Tyndall scattering, is light scattering by particles in a colloid or else particles in a very fine suspension. It is named after the 19th-century physicist John Tyndall.
Headlights cannot penetrate fog because it is a colloidal substance, meaning that fog is made up of scattered particles. When light hits a substance with scattered particles, it collides with the particles, causing the light to scatter in multiple directions.
Tyndall effect is shown by colloidal solution.Here milkis only colloidal solution
thnx buddy :D to help me out ...!
my pleasure


The scattering of light by the particles in mainly colloids or dilute or very fine suspension is called tyndall effect.

milk shows tyndall effect as it is a colliod. we can easily identify colliods as generally fluid or jelly like.
when we show the torch light towards milk,we are able to see it the other side.

1..tyndall effect is also called tyndall scattering .
    it is light scattering done by particles of  a suspension or a colloid.
    this experiment is named after john tyndall..
2..milk shows tyndall effect .as it is a colloidal solution the particles of it           would scatter light .so milk shows tndall effect.as the other particles are        too small to scatter light they dont show tyndall effect..
