    Significance and Use

    These criteria and procedures provide a uniform base for analysis of liquid drop data.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice gives procedures for determining appropriate sample size, size class widths, characteristic drop sizes, and dispersion measure of drop size distribution. The accuracy of and correction procedures for measurements of drops using particular equipment are not part of this practice. Attention is drawn to the types of sampling (spatial, flux-sensitive, or neither) with a note on conversion required (methods not specified). The data are assumed to be counts by drop size. The drop size is assumed to be the diameter of a sphere of equivalent volume.

    1.2 The analysis applies to all liquid drop distributions except where specific restrictions are stated.
