An attempt was made to demonstrate that a linear cluster of particles consisting of N spherical particles embedded in a viscous host medium amplifies various static fields. A simple geometry was considered which allowed to experimentally verify the considered effects. The obtained results indicate the feasibility of separating fine particles from the suspension by injecting into the mixture the particles with the intermediate size.
