In analyzing the availability of phosphate to phytoplankton, for example, we might be concerned with molecular diffusion, the random motion of the phosphate ions as they are buffeted by molecules of water. The water may be flowing smoothly ( so-called laminar flow), and the phosphate is then also carried along by the current, a process known as advection; alternatively, the water may be turbulent, flowing in an irregular and stochastic fashion with eddies at many length scales, so that ...

random motion is the motion of an atom in a fluid whose velocity changes randomly in both magnitude and direction as a consequence of repeated collisions. The distance traveled between collisions is also random. A change is random if the new value cannot be determined from previous values. (Compare with Brownian motion.l randomness and radioactive decay are ...

The gas molecules are considered rigid, solid, spherical point particles which are always in regular random motion. (b) Gas molecules collide with one another, as well as with the walls of the vessel. (c) Collisions on the walls are responsibile for pressure. (d) Actual volume of the gas molecules is negligibly small as compared to total volume occupied by the gas. (e) Collisions are perfectly elastic, so no energy is lost during collisions.

heat Also called thermal energy, heat is the internal energy of matter, the ENERGY of the random motion of matter's microscopic constituents (its ATOMs, MOLECULEs, and IONs). In a GAS, the molecules or atoms are confined only by the walls of the container.

The random motion at microscopic level of particles suspended in a liquid or a gas. As stated by P. DAVIES: "Brownian motion is the archetypical, random unpredictable process. Yet, so the argument ran, it we could follow in detail the activities of all the individual molecules involved, Brownian motion would be every bit as predictable and deterministic as clockwork. The apparent random motion of the Brownian particle is attributed solely to the lack of ...
