Revision 2 . . October 17, 2001 6:21 am by Eean [My mistake. Gas is a kind of fluid.]
Revision 1 . . October 17, 2001 6:15 am by Eean [Does brownian motion occur in gas?]

Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)

Changed: 1,3c1
Looking at the [Dictionary.com] definition, there appears to be some disagreement on whether it occurs only in a liquid or in gas and liquids. At school a few years ago I was taught that Brownian motion was the reason for spreading the smell of perfume.

From doing a Google search, it looks at least orginally it was only applied to liquid.
