Question 46 (Textile Engineering & Fibre Science)
The waste extraction in blow room, card and comber are 6%, 4% and 16% respectively. The weight of combed sliver (kg) from 1 kg of cotton from bale would be
Option C is correct.
Given in the question-
In blow room=6%
Weight of cotton bale=1 kg
Weight of combed sliver=?
Weight of combed sliver=Weight of cotton bales x (1-Waste in B/R) x (1-Waste in card) x (1-Waste in comber)
Weight of combed sliver=1 x (1-6%) x (1-4%) x (1-16%)
Weight of combed sliver=1 x (1-0.06) x (1-0.04) x (1-0.16)
Weight of combed sliver=1 x 0.94 x 0.96 x 0.84
Weight of combed sliver=0.758 kg (Ans)
