Rayleigh Scattering in the atmosphere - why the sky is blue

----------Rayleigh Scattering----------- ---------Why is the sky blue?---------- Elastic scattering of light or other electromagnetic radiation by particles (atoms or molecules). It can occur when light travels through transparent solids or liquids - most prominently seen in gases. Rayleigh scattering of sunlight in the atmosphere causes diffuse sky radiation, which is the reason for the blue color of the sky & the yellow tone of the sun itself.

[VIDEO] RAYLEIGH SCATTERING explained by Professor Emeritus Walter Lewin at MIT (and more) For The Love Of Physics. I recommend watching the whole lecture from beginning, the part on color starts at about 28:00  http://youtu.be/SRh75B5iotI?t=27m56s

Rayleigh scattering: elastic scattering of light/other electromagnetic radiation by particles much smaller than wavelength of light; individual atoms or molecules; can occur when light travels thru transparent solids & liquids; most prominently seen in gases; results from electric polarizability of particles; the oscillating electric field of light wave acts on the charges within a particle, causing them to move at same frequency; particles becomes small radiating dipole seen as scattered…
