The experimental results on physical properties of lotus seed are introduced and analyzed. The measured data includes the out size of the whole lotus seed and lotus seed's core, the thickness of lotus seed's shell, the density of lotus seed's shell and lotus seed's core. These data may help to design equipment for processing lotus seed. Lotus seed's shell can be separated from lotus seed's core by gravity separator because of their different densities.
