2 It is desired to separate 1000kg of a mixture of crushed solids into three fractions a coarse fraction
retained on a 20 mesh screen; a middle fraction passing through a 20 mesh screen and retained on a 65 mesh
screen. Two Tyler Std Screens are used to remove particles 20/65. Screen analysis of the feed, coarse, medium
and fine fractions are given. What are the effectiveness of the 20 & 65 screens, given the ff. screen analysis

F= 1000 kg
