Question 19 (Textile Engineering & Fibre Science)

The diameter (mm) of a yarn having twist of 700 turns per meter and surface twist angle of 20o (rounded off to 2 decimal places) is __0.16 to 0.18__.

[Show Answer]

Write Here

Given in the question :

Twist per meter(TPM)=700
Surface twist angle(\alpha)=20o
The diameter of yarn(D)=?

Calculation by formula:
By yarn geometry-

Tan\alpha=\pi x Diameter(D) x Twist(TPM)

tan20o=3.14 x D x 700

0.36397=3.14 x D x 700 (tan20o=0.36397)

D=0.000165591 meter

D=0.16 mm (Answer)
