ABSTRACT
The restitution coefficients of chick pea and lentil seeds were determined as a function of moisture content. The effects of grain type, moisture content, impact plate and free fall height on the restitution coefficient of chick pea and lentil seeds were studied. The restitution coefficient of chick pea and lentil seeds decreased as moisture content increased. The difference between values of restitution coefficient of chick pea and lentil seeds was statistically significant. The restitution coefficient of lentil seeds decreased as free fall height increased. The values of restitution coefficient obtained with steel plate were higher than those of fibreglass plate at all moisture content levels for chick pea and lentil seeds.
