Single Particle Motion

Want to be great athletes? Study aerosol science & engineering because you surely need to know how to control particle movement in the air!

V

• Newton’s Resistance Law The force is proportional to the gas pushed away and the relative velocity between the sphere and the gas (negligible viscous force)

CD = 0.44 (sphere) for 103 < Rep < 2×105

Airplane 0.25

?

• Reynolds Number: ratio of inertial forces to frictional forces (Chap.2.5)

For a spherical particle, L = dp,

Q: Choose a combination of dp and V when the Newton’s Law can be applied.

Stokes’ Law: negligible inertial force compared to viscous force (Rep < 1); in a laminar flow for a spherical particle

• Assumptions used in solving Navier Stokes’ equation:
• Incompressible flow (g = cons)
• Constant motion (V = const)
• Rigid sphere
• Fluid velocity on the particle surface

Q: How does FD change wrt V and dp in the laminar regime?

Q: Under what scenario will you expect to apply Newton’s law instead of Stokes’ Law?

Q: How does CD change wrt Re from 10-3 to 105?

Settling Velocity
• When the drag force is equal and opposite to the gravitational force
• Particle Mechanical Mobility
• Settling Velocity

~0

Q: What is the physical meaning of B?

Q: Does a smaller or a larger particle

have larger mobility?

1 mm

0.1 mm

Terminal Settling Velocity of unit-density spheres

: mean free path (Chap 2.3)

0.066 mm for air @STP

• Cunningham Slip Correction Factor: gas velocity at the surface of small particles is not zero --> slip

(Re < 1)

Q: So is the corrected VTS larger or smaller?

Appendix A11

Q: How long do you have to wait for 0.1 mm particles to completely settle in this classroom (4 m high)?

Knudson Number

Kn = 2/dp

• A dimensionless number for the relative size of a particle in the system
• Continuum regime: Kn << 1. Gas molecules striking the particle surface are strongly affected by those leaving.
• Free Molecular regime: Kn >> 1. The gas molecule movement is rarely affected by the presence of the particle.

Q: Kn for a 10 mm particle? In which regime?

Nonspherical Particles
• Dynamic shape factor: the ratio of the actual resistance force of the nonspherical particle to the resistance force of a sphere having the same volume and velocity
• Drag force
• Settling velocity

de: equivalent volume diameter

Q: Does an irregular particle experience a larger or smaller force (compared to a particle with the same volume)?

Aerodynamic Diameter
• The Stokes diameter, ds, is the diameter of the sphere that has the same density and settling velocity as the particle.
• The aerodynamic diameter, da, is the diameter of the unit density (0 = 1 g/cm3) sphere that has the same settling velocity as the particle.

Cunningham factor should be included if dp < 1 mm

Q: Can we design an instrument by applying settling velocity?

Horizontal Elutriator (settling chamber, spectrometer)

Q: Can it be vertical?

Q: Can we make the acceleration > g?

Vertical Elutriator

FD=3VTSdp

FD=3V(t)dp

Particle Acceleration
• Newton’s law

 = mB : relaxation time

Q: What is the physical meaning of relaxation time?

FG=mg

FG=mg

FG=mg

t=0

V(t)=0

t=

V(t)=VTS

t>3

V(t)=VTS

Non-zero Initial velocity

Displacement

Stopping Distance

Time for unit density particles to reach their terminal velocity

• An aerosol can adjust itself very quickly to a new environment!!!
Inertial Impaction
• Stokes number: the ratio of the stopping distance of a particle to a characteristic dimension of the obstacle
• For an impactor

Q: Stk << 1? Stk >> 1?
