TYNDALL EFFECT: LIGHT BEAM IS VISIBLE IN A COLLOID<br />
Light Scattering By Colloidal Particles<br />
Colloidal particles are so small that  bombardment by the molecules of the medium keeps the particles in suspension.  Their random motion is Brownian motion. The solution on the left is not colloidal & the light beam remains invisible. Water and gelatin.
