The flow anisotropies with the Fourier coefficients (n = 2, 3) for the charged particles produced in PbPb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of 5.02 TeV is studied with the CMS detector. In order to extract the Fourier coefficients, several methods were used, such as the scalar product method or multi-particle cumulant method. The results cover both of the low-pT region (1 < pT < 3 GeV/c) associated with hydrodynamic flow phenomena and the high-pT region where anisotropic azimuthal distributions may reflect the path-length dependence of the parton energy loss in the created medium for the seven bins of collision centrality, spanning the rang of 0-60% most-central events.
