# Practice Test: Question Set - 22

1. A cottrell precipitator makes use of the __________ for dusty air cleaning.
(A) Electric spark
(B) Corona discharge
(C) Alternating current
(D) None of these

2. The basic filtration equation is given as dt/dV = (Âµ/AP). [(Î± .CV/A) + Rm], where, V is volume of the filtrate; A is the filtration area, a is specific cake resistance, Î¼ is viscosity of the filtrate, and is the concentration of the solids in the feed slurry.
In a 20 minutes constant rate filtration, 5 m3 of filtrate was obtained. If this is followed by a constant pressure filtration, how much more time in minutes, it will take for another 5 m3 of filtrate to be produced? Neglect filter medium resistance, Rm; assume incompressible cake.
