Keywords: Physical property, chickpea, dimension, density, friction, terminal velocity, cohesion
Physical attributes and some moisture dependent physical properties of chickpea (large
kabuli, small kabuli (chico) and desi) were measured. The major, intermediate, minor and geometric
diameter, unite mass and volume of seeds measured at moisture content of about 10% w.b. The
particle and bulk densities, porosity, projected area, emptying and filling angle of reposes, static
coefficient of friction on various surfaces, cohesion and terminal velocity of chickpea seed were
measured at different levels of moisture content (7.5 -14% w.b.).
