At noon the sun appears white as a) light is least scattered b) all the colours of the white light are scattered away c) blue colour is scattered the most d) red colour is scattered the most

Answer: (a) light is least scattered

  • Different wavelengths of light combine together to form white light.
  • Because the sun is overhead at noon, there is the least amount of scattering, therefore it appears white.
  • When it is overhead, there is less air to travel through, and dust and other particles scatter, which will be reduced if the distance travelled in the air is reduced.
