    Hi, I have a question.

    In the box “why is the sky blue?”, it says that “While longer wavelengths simply pass through the particles, shorter wavelengths exhibit a greater probability of being scattered.” My question about this sentence. Why do longer wavelengths just pass through, while shorter ones cannot and interact with particles in the air?
