Science/ Biology 8

posted by .

There is a question in my science textbook and no where in the textbook can I find the answer- neither can I find the answer on the internet.

The question is: "If you shine a flashlight in a dark room and sprinkle talcum powder in front of the flashlight, what property of light does it show?"

Please Help!

    Isn't light reflected off of each particle? The term "property of light" is used rather loosely here.
