A possibility is shown to simultaneously determine the aerodynamic and geometrical sizes of suspended particles at some modification of the known television methods. Under certain conditions it is possible to estimate particle matter density A relative error in the determination of the density is minimal for particles close in form to spheres. In this case it may be about 20%. In the opposite case this error may be significantly higher.

    Atmospheric aerosol particles play an important part in the control of the state of the atmosphere. Since the effects of the particles depend on their size and chemical composition, the determination of the mass balance as a function of the size is of particular importance. The chemical mass...
