Particle adhesion to surfaces is important in a wide range of industrial applications. This brief presentation is designed to provide an introduction to the forces that influence particle adhesion in air or liquid environments. It is not designed to provide information at great depth or sophistication - such content will be delivered in later contributions. The following forces are reviewed briefly: van der Waals forces, electrostatic forces, hydration forces, solvation forces, and hydrophobic forces.
