What multiplication is it? Arnold Volume shader: scatter channel

Recommended Posts

it says in the docs:

"Scatter channel to read from the volume object. This acts as a multiplier on the scatter color, to texture the color of the volume."

https://docs.arnoldrenderer.com/display/A5AFMUG/Standard+Volume

 

What multiplication is that? 1 (colour white) * density?

There is a big mess in the bottom of the cloud so I'd like to know what is the formula used? what's multiplied by what?

If my volume is 9 times denser and the colour is 1 (white), does it mean the denser the brighter? 

 

 

I've included comparison (top: empty channel, bottom: channel is density)
