Abstract

The scattering properties of prepared stable hydrosols have been obtained by two independent methods, by integration of volume-scattering function data, and by direct measurement of the total scattering. The correlation coefficient between the two methods has been determined to be 0.99. Data are given for the total attenuation coefficient, the total-scattering coefficient, the forward- and backward-scattering coefficients, and the volume-scattering function for two samples of water and one prepared hydrosol consisting of 40 cc of skim milk in 600 gallons of water. For the prepared hydrosols a correlation coefficient of 0.999 was found between the total scattering coefficient and the volume-scattering function at 45°. A comparison is made between the present data for distilled water and data published by Hulbert in 1945.
