Airborne Particle Deposition in Cleanrooms
spherical particle settles at about 0.0008 cm/s. However, deposition velocity increases in proportion to the square of the particle diameter, and with larger particles it is a dominant mechanism e.g. 5µm and 50µm spherical particles have a settling velocity of about 0.08 and 8 cm/s, respectively. b. Turbulent deposition occurs when

Stokes' law  Wikipedia
At terminal (or settling) velocity, the excess force F g due to the difference between the weight and buoyancy of the sphere (both caused by gravity) is given by: = (−), with ρ p and ρ f the mass densities of the sphere and fluid, respectively, and g the gravitational acceleration.Requiring the force balance F d = F g and solving for the velocity v gives the terminal velocity v s.

The terminal velocity of a particle which is falling in the viscous fluid under its own weight due to gravity. Generally, for small particles (laminar approximation), it can be calculated with Stokes' Law. For larger particles (turbulent particle Reynolds numbers), fall velocity is calculated with the turbulent drag law. Analytically combination of the expression for Stokes flow and the ...
