Question 43 (Textile Engineering & Fibre Science)

A yarn is passing over a multiplicative tensioner with an angle of wrap of 90o. If the input yarn tension is 100 cN and coefficient of friction between yarn and tensioner is 0.2, then the output yarn tension in N, accurate to two decimal place, would be …………………

[Show Answer]

Write Here

Given in the question

Multiplicative type tensioner

Angle of wrap(\theta)=90o
Angle of wrap(\theta)=\frac{\pi}{2}

Input yarn tension(T1)=100 cN

Coefficient of friction(\mu)=0.2

The output tension(T2)=?

T_2=T_1\times e^(\mu\theta)

T_2=100\times e^(0.2\times \frac{\pi}{2})

T_2=100\times e^(0.1\times\pi)

T_2=100\times e^(0.1\times 3.14)

T_2=100\times e^(0.314)

T_2=100\times 1.37

T_2=137 cN

T_2=1.37 N (Answer)
