Physical Properties of Soybean (A Research Report Communication)

TA Nwakonobi, FI Idike

Abstract


Physical properties of linear dimensions, sphericity and solid density of four different varieties of dry mature soybean were determined in this study. For the varieties - TGX1768-6F, TGX-1681-3F, TGX-536-02D, and TGX-1740-3F, the mean sphericity are 0.745, 0.857, 0.830, and 0.829 respectively. It is shown from the statistical analysis that there is significant difference between the sphericity of TGX-1768-6F and the other three varieties at a probability level of 0.05. The solid densities of all the varieties are very close and range from 1079.5 to 1170kg/m3.
