The particle transport simulation is designed to help students gain a deeper level of understanding of the relationship between velocity and particle size. Students will be able to manipulate the velocity and particle size to see if the particle will move. The mathematical component will require the students to construct a particle graph using the simulator and Earth Science Reference Table (ESRT).
