Torni is on a distinguished road

i am a german student.
I hope you can help me.

Does anyone know how to display the value of the wall distance of particles?
I want to represent in a graph, how many percent of all particles collide (at any point) with the wall or how many particles follow the flow.

Not sure how to do this - I would try exporting the particle track data and post-processing it in something like matlab or python so you can interrogate the particle fates conditional on them passing through a certain location.
