Abstract

Collision efficiencies E have been determined from particle trajectories for the case of a 1-mm glass sphere and 6–20 μ spherical glass particles falling in still air. An empirical formula for the dependence of E upon scavenger size, scavenger velocity, and particle terminal velocity has been derived.
