1.0 INTRODUCTION Sieving refers to the separation of a mixture of particles of different sizes using sieves each with a uniform sized opening. Standard sieves of specified opening sizes are used. Sieves are stacked with the sieve with the largest opening on the top and the material is separated into fractions by shaking. The material between two sieves is smaller than the upper sieve opening but larger than the smaller sieve opening. Many natural and manufactured materials occurs in a disperse form, which means that it consist of differently shaped and sized particles. The particle size distribution, i.e. the number of particles of different size, is responsible for the determination of important physical and chemical properties such as: Mechanical bulk behavior Surface reaction Taste Miscibility Filtration properties Conductivity This list could be continued at great length. The examples clearly show how important it

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
