Question 2 Explanation:

Particle Size, Shape, and Distribution:

Particle size is generally controlled by screening, that is, by passing the metal powder through screens (sieves) of various mesh sizes. Several other methods also are available for particle-size analysis:

1. Sedimentation, which involves measuring the rate at which particles settle in a fluid.

2. Microscopic analysis, which may include the use of transmission and scanning- electron microscopy.

3. Light scattering from a laser that illuminates a sample, consisting of particles suspended in a liquid medium; the particles cause the light to be scattered, and a detector then digitizes the signals and computes the particle-size distribution.

4. Optical methods, such as particles blocking a beam of light, in which the particle is sensed by a photocell.

5. Suspending particles in a liquid and detecting particle size and distribution by electrical sensors.
