Question 25 (Textile Technology & Fibre Science)
A cellulosic fabric has been tested with boric acid to impart flame retardancy. The wet expression is 100%. The molecular weight of boric acid is 62 and the atomic mass of boron is 11. Assume that no chemical reaction takes place between boric acid and the fibre. If 2.2% boron has been added on the weight of fabric (owf), then the add-on of boric acid on fabric (% owf) (rounded off to 1 decimal place) is _________.
