Particles of all different shapes and sizes are less than 0.5 nanometers (µm)
- Polymeric Particles 0.5µm
- Metal Particles 0.5µm
- Ceramic Particles 0.5µm
What is a Particle?
The above is an overview but not accurate as a particle has no exact size. So, what is a particle? A particle is the smallest piece of itself. What do I mean by this? Imagine you have a pebble and whack it with a lump hammer and it breaks to a smaller size, but if you smashed it with a hammer until it is the smallest possible non-breakable fragment of itself then that is a ‘PARTICLE’
A particle is a basic fundamental element of energy:
A particle can also be?
The term ‘Particle’ is often used by scientists and theorists to describe the smallest part of anything. Example: Astronomers like myself often use the term particle to describe stars in the night sky, unlike a Physicist that uses it to describe them as electrons.
- Atoms are ‘Neutral Particles’ in the singular.
- An ion is a charged particle
- A molecule is two or more particle joined to each other
