Abstract

The size of a spherical homogeneous particle is uniquely defined by its diameter. For a cube the length along one edge is characteristic, and for other regular shapes there are equally appropriate dimensions. With some regular particles, it may be necessary to specify more than one dimension. For example: cone, diameter and height; cuboid, length, width and height.
