hey ... i need help with this problem


Grain density=700 kg/m^3
velocity of belt=1.3 m/sec
tan(theta)=tan(30)=0.6
hight=5m
wide of belt = 50cm

find:
1- real Length
2- conveing wight

look at pic

My answer :


1- sin(30)= 5\L
L= 10 * 2.5= 25m

2- conveing wight i need help with it

Oh so many colors.
I don't understand how you tried to calculate the length, but the result is wrong. The tangens is not really useful here.

What is "conveing wight"? And do you have some height of the material on the conveyor?
