The flux of light scattered by a polydisperse system at 90°, integrated along the optical path of the incident beam, exhibits an extremum in dependence on the suspension concentration, and is formally described by the same equation as holds for monodisperse systems. The coefficients in this equation are the mean values of the individual coefficients of the monodisperse components.
