Increase in fineness of cement-

  1. Increase the rate of hydration.
  2. Change in the total amount of heat liberated.
  3. Decrease in the rate of heat of hydration.
  4. Both A and B.

Answer: A. Increases the rate of hydration

Increase in fineness of cement increases the rate of hydration.

Solution

Fineness of cement determines the size or fineness of cement particles.

  • Fineness of cement is responsible for rate of hydration, heat of hydration and rate of gain strength.
  • Finer the cement faster the rate of hydration and it develops early strength. Hence, an increase in fineness of cement increases the rate of hydration.
