s] is the sedimentation velocity, [mu] is the fluid viscosity, [[rho].
For example, according to the observation of Davis and Acrivos (1985), at low volume fraction of solid particles, [phi], these two types of approaches give different asymptotic forms for sedimentation velocity [u.
Pollen is predicted to be dispersed farther under unstable conditions than neutral conditions, regardless of sedimentation velocity [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED].
If the sedimentation velocity is not towards the surface, the electric field needs to be increased so that the DEP velocity exceeds the sedimentation velocity.
