This involves investigation of particle dynamics fundamentals to understand how particles move. A particle can be defined as a discrete
object or quantity of matter that is separated from the surrounding environment by an interface. Suspension of solid or liquid particles in a gas is referred to it as an aerosol particle or simply aerosol. Dust, smoke, mists, fog, haze, and smog are various forms of common aerosols/particles.
