In conclusion, soil particle size and heterogeneity may greatly affect the growth of plants. Thus, when we address the effects of soil nutrient availability or the effects of soil nutrient heterogeneity, caution should be taken when different soil types are used to form low and high nutrient conditions, because different soil types may differ ... Thus, sprays exhibit a wide particle size distribution, whereas condensed particles such as fumes, mists, and fogs are particularly uniform in size. Table 6-1 gives the approximate average particle sizes for dusts and mists which might be generated around process plants.
