In order to understand the practical working of cyclones, it is necessary to master a number of topics, which span a range of different disciplines. Fluid mechanics, particularly relating to swirling flows, particle motion in a fluid, and different aspects of particle properties, such as size and size distribution, shape, and density, are all topics relevant to the later chapters.
