Brownian Motion

Brownian motion (named after the botanist Robert Brown) or pedesis (from Greek: πήδησις "leaping") is the assumably random movement of particles suspended in a fluid (a liquid or a gas) or the mathematical model used to describe such random movements, which is often called a particle theory.

FYI: HOW DOES BROWNIAN DIFFER FROM MOTILITY?
Brownian motion is a random motion produced by the vibration of molecules by ambient heat energy.
Motility is the ability to move spontaneously and independently using internal energy stores to effect the movement. It can apply to either single-celled or multicellular organisms.
Thus Brownian motion just happens but motility is a deliberate act.
