Cutoff Size

The cutoff size can be determined using the following equation (Review the module of Aerosol Transport for details).

You can use the following program to calulate the cutoff size of an impactor with a give jet diameter and sampling flow rate. How does the cutoff size change with respect to the changes of jet diameter and flow rate?
