the pringles manufacturing company tells you that they are switching to a potato supply that has a higher moisture content than those used previously. The new supply, after being mashed an cooked, prior to drying for pringles production, now contains 70% moisture content. they still must produce 300.0kg of pringles per hour and pringles must contain 48% moisture content. The company wants to know if its current evaporation equipment can be used with this new supply of potatoes. this equipment can remove 180kg of H20 per hour. the equation for the moisture content (wet basis) in biological materials such as pringles is MC(wet basis)=(H20/H20+Dry Matter)x100
