Example text

In the first, two sets of increments are collected, one with w as small and the other as large as feasible. The component of interest is measured and a sampling variance calculated for each set. Values for A and B can be calculated from A = wLwS ( S s2 - S L2 )/wL - wS and B = S L2 - (A/wL). A second approach, applicable only to material for which the reciprocal of the average particle mass m can be estimated, is to collect a series of pairs of increments, each member of a pair being of weight w and collected from near its partner.

However, if immiscible components of differing densities are present, blending may be required continuously during subsampling. The shape of the container and type of mixer may be important in ensuring a proper blending of the constituents. When the sample contains liquid and solid constituents, the phases may be separated and analyzed separately, in which case the amount and the composition of each phase present may need to be known. Complete separation of the phases could be a problem, and the definition of dissolved and suspended matter may be arbitrary, for example, based on separability by a filter of specified porosity.

It must be taken according to a specific strategy, preserved to minimize deterioration, contained to prevent intrusion of foreign substances or to minimize escape of constituents of interest, processed to retain its integrity, and subsampled as necessary, while maintaining its correspondence to other members of its immediate family. Because all these aspects cannot be guaranteed, it may be necessary to analyze a number of subsamples, to perform related measurements to evaluate the magnitude of any actual or potential complication, or both.
