Belt conveyor problem

  1. Feb 14, 2013 #1
    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?
