Chapter 9, Problem 5CQ
Textbook Problem

A typical silo on a farm has many bands wrapped around its perimeter, as shown in Figure CQ9.5. Why is the spacing between successive bands smaller at the lower portions of the silo?

  Chapter 9, Problem 5CQ, A typical silo on a farm has many bands wrapped around its perimeter, as shown in Figure CQ9.5. Why

  Figure CQ9.5

To determine
Why do spacing between successive bands in the lower portions of the silo is less than the upper portions.

Explanation of Solution

The pressure is maximum at the bottom of a column because at the bottom the weight of the entire column contributes to pressure.

In a silo the pressure at the bottom portion is maximum. The bands are wrapped around the silo to counteract the outward pressure of the silo...
