This standard specifies a method of determining the apparent density, i.e. the mass per unit of volume, of loose material (powder or granular material) that can be poured from a funnel of specified design. When the method is applied to relatively coarse materials, rather variable result may be obtained, owing to the error introduced when a straightedge blade is drawn across the top of the cylinder.
