Abstract One of the first stages of planet formation is the growth of small planetesimals and their accumulation into large planetesimals and planetary embryos. This early stage occurs much before the dispersal of most of the gas from the protoplanetary disk. Due to their different aerodynamic properties, planetesimals of different sizes/shapes experience different drag forces from the gas at these stage. Such differential forces produce a wind-shearing effect between close by, different size… Expand

The effect of gas drag on the growth of protoplanets - Analytical expressions for the accretion of small bodies in laminar disks
Planetary bodies form by accretion of smaller bodies. It has been suggested that a very efficient way to grow protoplanets is by ac- creting particles of sizekm (e.g., chondrules, boulders, orExpand

Planets form in the circumstellar disks of young stars. We review the basic physical processes by which solid bodies accrete each other and alter each others' random velocities, and we provideExpand
