The aerodynamic diameter of a non-spherical aerosol particle is primarily related to the final settling velocity of the particle. The aerodynamic diameter is not obtained directly from mobility measurements by formally calculating a sphere diameter from the mobility equation for a spherical particle. Instead, a correction factor involving the dynamic shape factor of the non-spherical particle must be applied. © 1971.
