Why chinaware and glassware are wrapped in paper or straw pieces before packing?

Asked by Topperlearning User | 5th Jun, 2014, 09:08: AM

Expert Answer:

Chinaware or glassware are wrapped in paper or straw, because in the event of a fall, impact will take a longer time to reach the glass/chinaware through paper/straw. As a result, the average force exerted on the chinaware or glassware is small thereby reducing their chance to break.
