Problem 1 Would Stokes’ law be expected to hold for very tiny
particles falling in air if the diameter of the particles is of the order of the
mean free path of the air molecules? Explain.
Sol: No, at that length scale, the Knudsen number, defined by
Kn = λ/D, is of order 1. The behavior of such particle will be governed
by statistical mechanics rather continuum mechanics, which is the
framework for Stokes’ Law.
