Abstract

The aerosol particle mass analyzer (APM) classifies aerosol particles according to their mass-to-charge ratio (Ehara et al., 1996). Particle mass can be measured by use of the APM in combination with a condensation particle counter. Being a balance method, this technique is expected to attain such accuracy as required in certifying the mass and/or diameter of standard particles for instrument calibration. In the present study, we have analyzed the uncertainty in an APM particle mass measurement.
