Volume-based particle size
Particle size is a notion introduced for comparing dimensions of solid particles (flecks), liquid particles (droplets), or gaseous particles (bubbles).
The notion of particle size applies to
-Particles in ecology;
-Particles present in granular material whether airborne or not;
-Particles that form a granular material.
The particle size of a spherical object can be unambiguously and quantitatively defined by its diameter.
Volume-based particle size equals the diameter of the sphere that has the same volume as a given particle.
|The diameter of representative sphere (mm)
|The volume of particle (mm3)
