Prior to accessing your first module in the Occupational and Nanotechnology Health and Safety series, we need you to complete a short survey. This information will satisfy our funding requirements and tell us who is interested in learning about occupational and nanotechnology health and safety. Once you have completed and submitted the survey, you have access to all the modules without repeating the survey. There are 19 modules in the series. You may take these modules in sequence or at your own discretion. Thank you for your interest in the METPHAST Modules.
Introduction to Aerosols
(This module is one of 5 units comprising the first section of METPHAST: Introduction to Occupational Hygiene. There are 15 modules on Nanotechnology Health and Safety, as well. See the section "Additional Information" for more details about these modules.)
In this module you will learn the definition of aerosols, the concepts of particle diameter, size distributions, how to derive surface area and mass from the number of particles, and how to measure concentrations.
By the end of the module, learners should be able to:
- Define "aerosol" and related terms
- Interpret summary properties of particle distribution
- Predict the relationship between aerosol source and particle size
- Describe approaches to measuring airborne particles
