Conclusions:
The bulk and tap density of test chemical was determined following the standard method recommended in the International Pharmacopoeia, fourth Edition, 2014. Method followed was pour and tap method. The bulk and tap density of the test chemical was determined to be 0.3125 gm/cm3 and 0.5 gm/cm3 at 22.8°C.
Executive summary:

The bulk and tap density of test chemical was determined following the standard method recommended in the International Pharmacopoeia, fourth Edition, 2014. Method followed was pour and tap method. The bulk and tap density of test chemical was determined to be 0.3125 gm/cm3 and 0.5 gm/cm3 at 22.8°C.
