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 http://hh7.an3m1.com/Sep/an3m1.com_13608577291.png 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?
