ABSTRACT
The physical properties of bay laurel seeds were determined at different moisture levels. As the moisture content increased, the major, intermediate and minor diameters increased linearly. The sphericity, surface area, true and bulk densities and the angle of repose increased, whereas porosity decreased with increasing moisture content. The coefficients of static and dynamic friction were the highest for galvanized steel, followed by chromium sheet, aluminium sheet and PVC, respectively.
