ABSTRACT: This report presents and disscusses an experimnt to determine the minimum fluidization velocity and from there to determine the average size of the sand particles inside the fluidized bed. During the experiment, air was passed through a fluidized bed and the pressure drop was recorded. The Minimum fluidization velocity was found to be (0.2033 m/s), and the average diameter of the sand partical was found to be (1.102 mm) with a percentage error of (15.34 %). INTRODUCTION: Fluidized bed reactors are used commonly in a number of processing applications. The manner in which a bed becomes fluidized can be understood by passing gas upward through a bed of solids at an increasing velocity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
