Abstract
The determination of the distribution of airborne toxic particles as a function of the aerodynamic diameter provides important information as well as criteria for the definition of hazard as applied to levels of airborne contamination. This is because the aerodynamic particle size distribution embodies the information related to particle density, diameter, shape factor and slip correction that is critical for the characterization of particle motion in settling and impaction and it is these motions that are responsible for particle deposition in the respiratory tract and particle collection in aerosol sampling devices. For a given definition of hazard based on some parameter related to the aerodynamic size distribution, this paper develops a statistical sampling error model for the parameter that is based on the Poisson process.
