Given in the question
Cotton processing=600 kg/h

Waste generated=2%


The lint accumulation in 8 hrs=?


Waste(kg/h)=Cotton processing x waste%

Waste(kg/h)=600 x 2/100


Lint accumulation(kg/h)=Waste in kg/h x lint %

Lint accumulation(kg/h)=12 x 60/100

Lint accumulation(kg/h)=720/100

Lint accumulation(kg/h)=7.20

Lint accumulation(kg/8h)=7.20 x 8

Lint accumulation(kg/h)=56.6 (Answer)
