Particle Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
In the physical sciences, a particle is a small  object to which can be ascribed several physical or chemical properties such as volume or mass. The word is rather general in meaning, and is refined as needed by various scientific fields. Something that is composed of particles may be referred to as particulate, although this term is generally used to refer to a suspension of unconnected particles, rather than a connected particle aggregation.
