List of Symbols

Alternatively, one can employ the 'bulk density', which is the ratio between the amount of the porous material, mtot, and the total volume occupied by the packed particles Vtot, including both the inter-particle volume, Vex, the particle volumes, Vtpot (total volume of the pores) and Vtsot (total solid volume):

In this instance, both the pbulk and sex depend on the degree of packing. The relative apparent density, Apapp can be obtained by combining eqns [33] and [37]:

From eqn [33] it is apparent that, in this case, one must know the value of sex under the same experimental conditions which pbulk was determined. Lacking this information, it is only possible to make a rough estimate of Apapp.

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
