Two methods for determining average grain weights of sized particles are described, and average weights obtained with one of them for 100-200 mesh fractions of 16 common minerals are given. It is shown that reliable values for mica will require a micro-weighing for each analysis. Practical examples are used to illustrate the inadequacy of specific-gravity correction and the need for a combined specific-gravity and volume correction.
