    Particulates are fine solid (or liquid) particles that are suspended in the air.


    The shape of particulates depends on the molecules that make up the particulates. Sea salt (NaCl), for example, has a cubic shape. Some carbon particulates, like carbon soot, have soccer ball-like shapes. The shape depends on the structure ...
