Fine aggregates are materials which can be passed through BIS test sieve no. 480. Mostly the sand is used as fine aggregate or else the crushed stones are used as fine aggregates. They fill the empty space in concrete. 

Coarse aggregates are those which cannot pass through BIS test sieve no. 480. Usually broken stones are used as coarse aggregates. They provide stability and strength to concrete.

Size of an aggregate is the main difference between coarse and fine aggregate.

The building materials which are small in size ex: sand is known as a coarse aggregate.

The building material which are large in size compared to coarse aggregate ex:crushed gravel stone.
