    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This practice covers the reporting of particle size measurement data.

    1.2 This practice applies to particle size measurement methods, devices, detail levels, and data formats for dry powders, and wet suspensions of solids, gels, or emulsion droplets. This practice does not pertain to liquid particles.

    Note 1-For information on reporting liquid particle measurement data, refer to Practice E799.

    1.3 This practice does not concern particle concentration information.

    1.4 This practice uses SI (Systeme International) units as standard. State all numerical values in terms of SI units unless specific instrumentation software reports particle size information, including percentiles, indices, and distributions as tabulations and graphs using alternate units. In this case, present both reported and equivalent SI units in the final written report. Refer to Practice E380 for proper usage of SI units.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
