where t is the time of travel. If the tube (or part of the bronchial tree) in which they move is of radius R and is inclined at an angle y to the horizontal, the maximum distance of fall will no longer be 2R but 2R/cos y. The ratio, r, of the distance of fall to the maximum distance for deposition to be achieved is thus
