Explain dispersion and scattering of light

Dispersion of Light through Prism:

Dispersion is simply a process in which particles are homogeneously suspended in the medium as we will as after the particles are available to be examined individually. The scattering of radiant energy as we will as its interactions cover many phenomena. It relates to changes which are random in the direction of propagation of radiation. The mechanism of interaction involved depends upon the wavelength of radiation, the size, as we will as shape of the particles responsible for scattering as we will as their spatial arrangements. The three types of scattering recognized are Rayleigh scattering, in which the particles are very small compared to the wavelength, Tyndall scattering for larger particles as we will as Raman scattering where the frequency is shifted during scattering
