Paper Title
Moisture Dependent Physical and Frictional Properties of Mustard Seeds
  Pawanpreet Singh Grewal,  Dr. A K Singh

The physical and frictional properties of PBR-91 variety of Mustard seeds were evaluated as function of their moisture contents he geometric mean diameter, arithmetic mean diameter, sphericity , surface area, thousand seeds mass increased of PBR-91 variety of Mustard seeds from 1.61-1.92 mm, 1.58-1.92 mm, 0.921-0.991,8.14-11.58 mm2 and 4.21 to 6.51 g respectively for the increase in the level of moisture from 6% to 18% (wet basis) where as these parameters for RLC-1 variety of Mustard seeds increased from 1.681-1.881 mm, 1.653-1.857 mm, 0.91-0.941, 8.968-11.109 mm2 and 4.024-6.939 g respectively. The bulk density, true density and porosity decreased from 0.906-0.798 g/cc, 1.199-0.924 g/cc and 24.43-13.63% for PBR-91 variety where as these parameters for RLC-1 variety of Mustard seeds decreased from 0.890-0.785 g/cc, 1.275-0.954 g/cc and 30.19-17.77% respectively with increase in moisture content from 6 % to 18%(wet basis). The angle of repose for this variety was found to increase with increasing moisture content.

Keywords- Moisture, sphericity, mustard seeds, true density, porosity
