Mist is simply the atmospheric phenomenon that is formed by tiny vapour which gets suspended in the atmosphere on the surface of the Earth which causes errors in visibility.
It is much lighter when compared to fog which is much thicker and denser.
Mist also lasts for a shorter duration compared to fog, it is also wet particles but haze is dry particles. (NAN)
