A mathematical model of the motion of a solid particle in oscillatory stream of a viscous liquid was set up and analytically solved for Reynolds number in the relative motion Re < 2.0 (Stokes flow) and Reynolds number characterising the liquid stream Re* < 2100 (laminar flow). A computer aided method based on video image processing was applied as an experimental tool to analyse the particle motion and verify the mathematical model.
