An algorithm is suggested for calculating the particle size distribution in powdered materials from the results of sedimentation analysis in gravitational and centrifugal fields. Comparison of the particle size analysis for a Stokes' suspension of a specific fractional composition shows that the suggested algorithm eliminates a bias of the differential characteristic of the distribution toward an increase in particle size.
