Displacement of air particles.

  1. Feb 8, 2012 #1
    Is it possible for particles of air to be displaced by an organism and as the organism increases in size and mass the higher the displacement?

    Air, as a gas, will be displaced by the *volume* of a solid, in this case, an organism. And, sure, as the organism increases volume by some means (except consuming air), it will displace more of the gas, which is the air.
