variable size of particle test objects?

Is it possible to use an array for the size of individual objects in a particle set in the 2-D drawing pane?

I'm creating a model of an n-body simulation with collisions, and would like to have merged objects appear larger based on their mass.

Yes, it is. Just link the Size X and Size Y properties to an array of doubles, each with the size for the corresponding object on the set. Then change the size programmatically to whatever you want.
That should do it.
