How to simulate (floating) particles ? [closed]

This is what I am trying to do: I want to create a sphere and put a large number of tiny particles in it in a floating state. When the sphere moves in any direction, the particles should be hitting the walls of the sphere in the opposite direction due to inertia.

However, I am not able to figure out how to insert such particles in gazebo. I have the sphere and gravity in place.

If particles aren't possible, then alternatively, if there is a way to put some liquid that does the above task then that shall work fine too.

Can someone please tell me how to accomplish this task. I haven't been able to find any pointers on this whatsoever. I am new to gazebo and stuck at this point; no solution found since days.

I heard V-rep has some particles simulation as shown in this video But I am not sure if you can do what you want with that.
