    Please explain this! Thank you

    Well the quick answer is that the coarse particles settle in less time than the fine particles... seems to be part of a multi part question so is there any clue in the earlier section as to what might cause that?

    Umm, there are questions but not related to this actually, thanks

    The mark scheme says
    1) smaller particles reaches terminal velocity quicker
    2) Viscous drag varies in proportion to radius but weight varies in proportion to radius cubed.
    did not understand the 2nd point. please explain.

    I believe you need to consider the equations relation density to weight and mass, as well as that for the volume of a sphere, to reach the second part of the second point. You can then relate this to the first point, which should be somewhere on the sylalbus.

    Surface area of a sphere 4\pi r^2 (I think the mark scheme should read radius squared)

    Volume of a sphere \frac{4}{3}\pi r^3

    thank you!!!! can you kindly tell me what does "Varies in proportion means" in easy language.

    it means if you change the radius of a sphere of whatever, then the viscous drag/weight will correspondingly change - in this case the changes are proportional, as stated in the mark scheme

    Literally, one variable changes in response to a different variable.

    For instance, the speed of a car varies in proportion to the pressure applied to the accelerator pedal.

    The temperature of the room varies in proportion to size of the gas fire flame.

    The speed of descent varies in proportion to the liquid viscosity etc.
