Particle size (grain size) - Simple English Wikipedia, the ...

16 rows  Particle size, also called grain size, means the diameter of individual grains of sediment, or the lithified particles in clastic rocks. The term may also be used for other granular materials. In some schemes "gravel" is anything larger than sand (>2.0 mm), and includes "granule", "pebble", "cobble", and "boulder" in the above table.

Grain size - Wikipedia

Grain size (or particle size) is the diameter of individual grains of sediment, or the lithified particles in clastic rocks. The term may also be applied to other granular materials. This is different from the crystallite size, which refers to the size of a single crystal inside a particle or grain. A single grain can be composed of several crystals. Granular material can range from very small colloidal particles, through clay, silt, sand, gravel, and cobbles, to boulders.

Types of soil - Classification of soil types

In the grain-size classification, soils are designated according to the grain-size or particle-size. Terms such as gravel, sand, silt and clay are used to indicate certain ranges of grain-sizes. Since natural soils are mixtures of all particle-sizes, it is preferable call these fractions as sand size, silt size, etc.
