A method is proposed by which number frequency instead of weight may be used in the size analysis of sand. Random samples, taken from eight sieved sand samples representing two different stages of abrasion and periods of time, are counted and weighed to establish mean particle weights. A plot of these mean weights indicates that they are a function of sieve opening. This function is used in size analyses of the eight samples.
