d) Oven-dry weight of pulp

Explanation: The bulk density is the oven-dry weight of chips (or sawdust, or other wood residue) contained in a given volume of space.

2. Bulk density of the chips depend on the specific gravity of wood source.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: The bulk density is the oven-dry weight of chips (or sawdust, or other wood residue) contained in a given volume of space.

3. Bulk density of the chips depends on the chip geometry.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: The bulk density is the oven-dry weight of chips (or sawdust, or other wood residue) contained in a given volume of space.

4. Bulk density of the chips depends on the chip size distribution.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: The bulk density is the oven-dry weight of chips (or sawdust, or other wood residue) contained in a given volume of space.
