20 60
40 89
60 140
80 122
100 210

(5)
4 4.75 0 0 100
10 2.00 40 0 + 40 = 40 94.5
20 0.850 60 40 + 60 = 100 86.3
40 0.425 89 100 + 89 = 189 74.1
60 0.250 140 189 + 140 = 329 54.9
80 0.180 122 329 + 122 = 451 38.1
100 0.150 210 451 + 210 = 661 9.3
200 0.075 56 661 + 56 = 717 1.7
Pan 12 717 + 12 = 729 = ΣM 0

\frac{{}^a \sum M-col.4}{\sum M}\times 100=\frac{729-col .4}{729}\times 100
The particle-size distribution curve is shown in Figure 2.28.

Following are the results of a sieve analysis. Make the necessary calculations and draw a particle-size distribution curve.
