    buoyancy

    suspended = (of undissolved particles in a fluid) supported or kept from sinking or falling by buoyancy and without apparent attachment (Example: "Suspended matter such as silt or mud...")

    Please explain this definition.

    Re: buoyancy

    If something is bouyant, it floats or doesn't sink, so here the particles stay in the fluid and don't fall to the bottom.
