Physical Properties of Hawaiite
Physical properties of rocks are used to identify the type of rocks and to discover more about them. There are various physical properties of Hawaiite like Hardness, Grain Size, Fracture, Streak, Porosity, Luster, Strength etc which defines it. The physical properties of Hawaiite rock are vital in determining its Hawaiite Texture and Hawaiite Uses.
Hardness and Strength of Hawaiite
The physical properties of Hawaiite depend on its formation. Physical properties of rocks play an important role in determining its applications in various fields. Rocks are rated on the on the Moh's Hardness Scale which rates the rocks on the scale from 1 to 10. Rocks with hardness 1-3 are soft rocks from 3-6 are medium hardness rocks and 6-10 are hard rocks. The hardness of Hawaiite is 6 whereas its compressive strength is 37.40 N/mm2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. The streak of Hawaiite is not available whereas its fracture is conchoidal. Luster of Hawaiite is the interaction of light with the surface of Hawaiite. Luster of Hawaiite is not available. Hawaiite cleavage is not applicable. The specific gravity of Hawaiite is Not Available. Hawaiite is opaque in nature whereas its toughness is not available. You can also know all the list of rocks in Opaque Rocks, Translucent Rocks and Transparent Rocks.
