The influence of various factors such as moisture, grain size, and addition of oil on the bulk density of coal is described. There is a progressive reduction in the bulk density as the moisture content of coal increases, followed by an increase in bulk density which however never reaches the values for the dry coals. This optimum moisture content for a minimum bulk density is different for different coals. The higher the percentage of ash in the coal, the higher is the bulk density at any moisture content.
