Answer #1

A patient receiving total parenteral nutrition.

which contains 100 grams of fat per liter.

1 gram of fat provides 9 calories.

The patient requires 850 calories of fat per day.

A large tank contains 100 liters of a salt solution with a
concentration of 50 grams/Liter. A salt solution which has a
concentration of 4grams/Liter is added at 2 Liters per minute. At
the same time, the solution drains from the tank at 2 liters per
