The study was undertaken to determine the physical properties of green pea. The variety of pea taken for the study was Arkel and the seeds tend to be round or wrinkled in shape. The research work was carried out in the laboratory at the Department of Food Process Engineering, SHAITS, Allahabad. Test parameters taken for the study were geometric dimensions of pea seeds i.e. Average length (L), width (W) and thickness (T), Geometric mean diameter (Dp), Sphericity (ϕ), Mass, Moisture Content, Bulk density, True density, angle of repose and coefficient of friction. The results showed that the average length, width and thickness of pea seeds vary from 8.50 to 10.20 mm, 6.50 to 8.50 mm and 4.00 to 5.10 mm respectively. The Geometric mean diameter (Dp) by Mohsenin method and Sphericity by Sahay and Singh method for pea was 6.94 and 0.74 respectively. The moisture content of green pea was found to be 63.5 (% wb). The Bulk density and True density by Mohsenin method for pea varies from 563.99 to 571.55 kg/m3 and 985.66 to 991.88 kg/m3 respectively. Angle of repose and Coefficient of friction of green pea varies from 27.31° to 28.86° and 0.57 to 0.72 respectively.

Key words: Pea, moisture content, Sphericity, shelling machines, Geometric mean diameter.
