Blue light is scattered more than the other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time.

The presence of certain gases and particles in the atmosphere results to a scattering effect of the other light components in the spectrum, with blue light as an exemption, due to its shorter and faster waves. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
