Print name: _________________________________________ Signature: __________________________________________ Quiz: Select the one option that best answers the question by circling the letter in the box next to that answer.

B It refers to the phenomenon where the drag force on the particle is higher due to the tumbling action of the particles as they fall. C It refers to the phenomenon where it is observed that the settling speed of a group of suspended particles is slower than the speed of a single particle alone. D It refers to the reduction in settling speed due to the buoyancy provided by a thin gas film that typically surrounds small particles, owing to surface tension. A1. Answer C Hindered settling was at first counterintuitive to me, but we live in a high Re world (I am very big compared to a yeast cell, and so is my Re when I move around), where my car can “draft” behind a truck on a highway and save gas (not recommending this style of driving-TKB).
