PARTICLE SIZE ANALYSIS BY THE METHOD OF MUSGRAVE AND HARNER

A SIMPLE THEOROY IS PRESENTED OF THE TURBIDIMETRIC METHOD OF PARTICLE SIZE MEASUREMENT WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE WORK OF MUSGRAVE AND HARNER, WHOSE CALCULATIONS ARE CORRECTED AND SIMPLIFIED, MAKING THE METHOD EVEN MORE SUITABLE FOR QUALITY CONTROL WORK. IN 1947, MUSGRAVE AND HARNER INTRODUCED A SIMPLIFIED PHOTOMETRIC METHOD OF PARTICLE SIZE MEASUREMENT, BASED ON WAGNER'S PHOTOELECTRIC TURBIDIMETER, WHICH IS EMINENTLY SUITABLE FOR QUALITY CONTROL WORK WHERE A RAPID COMPARISON BETWEEN A STANDARD POWER AND AN UNKNOWN IS GENERALLY MORE IMPORTANT THAN AN ABSOLUTE KNOWLEDGE OF PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION. THE DETIVATION PRESENTED FOLLOWS MUSGRAVE AND HARNER IN CONSIDERING THE EFFECT ON THE OUTPUT OF A PHOTOVOLTAIC CELL OF THE PROJECTED SHADOW AREA OF PARTICLES IN A BEAM OF LIGHT FALLING ON IT, BUT DOES NOT DEPEND ON THE NOTION OF AN EQUIVALENT HIDING FACTOR, THUS MAKING THEIR METHOD MORE WIDELY APPLICABLE THAN WAS THE PREVIOUS CASE.
