# D50

D50 is the corresponding particle size when the cumulative percentage reaches 50%. D50 is also called as the median particle diameter or median particle size. For example, for a powder sample with D50 = 5μm, it means 50% of particles are larger than 5μm and 50% particles are smaller than 5μm. D50 is a typical characteristics used to represent the average particle size in the production and application of powder materials.
