Motion of the solid phase of an aerosol at large Reynolds numbers
Abstract
Singleterm formulas are given for determining the coefficient of resistance of a medium to the motion of suspended particles. These are used to obtain relations for determining the drag force of the medium at high Reynolds numbers. The general solution of the equation of rectilinear motion for a particle of arbitrary shape and a particular solution of this equation for Reynolds numbers above 1000 are obtained. A particular solution is also obtained for the case of the steady process of precipitation of particles under the action of gravity in a rising gas stream.
