A granular material is a conglomeration of solid macroscopic particles of various sizes, characterized by a loss of energy whenever the particles interact (i.e. friction). While powders are considered granular materials, they are classified as a special category, due to their small particle size, which allows them to be more cohesive and more easily suspended in a gas (become airborne).
