Abstract Characterisations of the distribution of a non-negative random variable are sought for which the Liapunov moment inequality is extended to give inequalities between inverse powers of moment ratios, which are known as mean sizes in considerations of particle size distributions. A solution is found for continuous distributions, and the conditions applied to a number of well-known distributions. A further class of distributions is considered for which the new inequalities hold but the inequality direction is reversed for some orders of the moments. The study involves examination of the signs of the third central moments of a family of distributions, obtained by a log transformation, from the weighted, or moment, distributions induced by the non-negative random variable.
