Suspended liquid droplets generated by condensation from the gaseous to the liquid state or by breaking up a liquid into a dispersed state, such as by splashing, foaming, or atomizing. Mist is formed when a finely divided liquid is suspended in air.
droplets of a liquid that are suspended in the air.
Mists are suspended liquid droplets generated by condensation of vapour back to the liquid state or by breaking up as a liquid into a dispersed state, such as by splashing or atomising. Mist is the term applied to a finely divided liquid suspended in the atmosphere. Examples are an oil mist produced during cutting and grinding operations, acid mists from electroplating, acid or alkali mists from pickling operations, paint spray mist in painting operations and the condensation of water vapour to form a fog.
