PROBLEMS OF MECHANICS

THE SPEED OF AN OBJECT IS THE DISTANCE THE OBJECT TRAVELS IN ONE UNIT OF TIME

PROBLEM SITUATION: The Transneft Synthesis plant production is designed to produce up to 3 thousand tonnes of drag reducing agents per year.

S = 3000 tonnes (maximum production per year) = 365 days (calendar year)
t = 365 days (calendar year)

Determine: the maximum daily production rate.
V — production rate per day

CHOOSE THE CORRECT ANSWER:


SOLUTION:

We determine the daily production rate:
V = S/t = 3000 tonnes / 365 days = 8.2 tonnes/day


ANSWER: V = 8.2 tonnes/day. The Transneft Synthesis plant can produce an average of 8.2 tonnes of the additives per day.
