Shredded solid waste was run through a set of sieves with the following results: What is the Rosin-Rammler characteristic size (x0) of this product? Use a graph to obtain your answer.

To determine

The Rosin-Rammler characterstic size (x0) of the given product with the help of a graph.

Explanation of Solution

Calculation:

Draw the table to calculate the corresponding Y value for usage in the Rosin Rammler equation from the sieve analysis result and linearized Y .

    Sieve Size (inches)(a) Fraction of feed retained on Sieve.(b) Cumulative Retained(c) Y=(1c)×100% X=ln(a) Linearised Yf=log(ln(11Y))
    10 0.05 0.05 95% 2.03 0.48
    8 0.20 0.25 75% 2.08 0.14
    4 0.32 0.57 43% 1.39 0.25
    2 0.18 0
