Fond friends, don't grieve
For scenes like these,
Or smart from bugs, mosquitoes, fleas,
Dwell not with me.

As it walks along with pride
On its back there's two mosquitoes
Cheek to cheek and side by side.

The dew-drops hang round him on blossoms and shoots,
He breathes but one sigh for his youth and his boots.

But now my bones all ache, and my skin is nearly yellow;

In science:
The idea was: mosquitoes were put in a hemispherical tent with a diameter of 230 cm, and a trap was set up somewhere in the tent.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
When a mosquito touched the trap, it would get killed because there we electriﬁed grids on the trap.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
By this experiment, he estimated the mean speed of mosquitoes.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
Let t be the time interval in which there are m mosquitoes that are trapped.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
Let ρ be the density of mosquitoes in the tent, let c be the mean speed of the mosquitoes and let A be the effective area of the trap.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
If we assume that the ﬂying of mosquitoes is a three dimensional random walk, by applying the theory of geometric probability to compute the value of K , then the mean speed of mosquitoes can be estimated from equation (1).
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
Let τ = E (l)/c , where c is the mean speed of mosquitoes.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
Then τ is the mean time interval that a mosquito stays in the sphere.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
Imagine that at each time ti , there are exactly N (new) mosquitoes get into the sphere and N (old) mosquitoes get out of the sphere.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
So, at any time, there are exactly N mosquitoes in the sphere.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
During any time interval of length τ , there are exactly N mosquitoes passing through the boundary and getting into the sphere.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
So the boundary ( or the sensor ) senses N mosquitoes, during a time interval of τ , that get into the sphere and hence senses N t/τ mosquitoes in any time interval of t.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
Since the system is in equilibrium state, the number of mosquitoes in the bounded region is not changed in any time.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
N mosquitoes walk into and walk out the bounded region in a unit time, that is, N = K ρcA · 1 . (b) We can choose the speed of random walker is 1, that is, c = 1 in random walk. (c) By the deﬁnition of density, ρ = n/V the quantity E (l)A/V is dimensionless.
On the Study of Richard Tom Robert Identity
There is a mosquito that gets into the region from boundary point A.
