Expert Answer:

Tyndall effect is the phenomenon when the light is scattered by the particles of colloid or particles of suspension which illuminates the path of light. The tiny particles scatter the beam of light and make its path visible.
In short, it is the scattering of light by particles in its path.
It is named after the physicist, John Tyndall.
