Question

A
plant grows in a lake with a volume of 1.75x10^11 m^3 at a rate of
1x10^-6s^-1. A stream flows into and out of the river at 14 m^3/s.
There isnt any growth upstream of the lake. if the concerntration
of the plant is around 4 mg/L, how long will it take to reach 50
mg/L?

Answer #1

A plant grows in a lake with Volume V = 1.75*10^-11 m3

Plant growth rate r = 1*10^-6 s-1

A stream flows in and out of the river at 14m3/s.

But here given there is no growth upstream of the lake means inlet stream having no growth .

Initial Concentration of the plant Cao = 4 mg/L

We want to find the time required for achieving concentration 50 mg/L.

By using growth rate formula for any substance first order, if treated as pfr.

Ca = Cao*exp(r*t)

50= 4*exp(1*10^-6*t)

12.5 = exp(1*10^-6*t)

Taking both side logarithmic,

ln12.5 = 1*10^-6 * t

t = 2525728 sec * (1hr/3600s) = 701.6hr

t = 701.6 hr

**time required to increase concentration 50 mg/L
.**

A clean lake with a constant volume of 107
m3 is fed by a pollution-free stream with flow rate of
50 m3/s.
A factory dumps 5.0 m3/s of waste with a pollutant
concentration of 100 mg/L into the lake. The pollutant
has a first-order reaction rate coefficient (decay) of 0.25
d-1. Assuming the pollutant is well-mixed in the
lake. How long does it take the lake to reach the steady-state
concentration? You may assume that if
concentration is approximately 99%...

Consider a 50 x 10^6 m^3 lake fed by a polluted stream with a
flow rate of 75 m^3/s and a pollutant concentration of 25.5 mg/L.
There is also a sewage outfall that discharges 3.0 m^3/s of
wastewater with a pollutant concentration of 125 mg/L. Stream and
sewage waste have a reaction rate coefficient of 5% per day. Find
the steady-state (i.e., effluent) pollutant concentration and flow
rate.

3. [20] You have been conducting a water quality study of Lake
Arjun, which has a surface area of 8.9 ×105 m2 . The average depth
of the lake is 9 m. The lake is fed by a stream having a flow rate
of 1.02 m3 /s and a phosphorus concentration of 0.023 mg/L. Runoff
from the homes along the lake adds phosphorus at an average annual
rate of 1.25 g/s. The river flows from the lake at a flow...

Problem #3: Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Stream
Quality
A wastewater
treatment plant designed for a community of 45,000 people has a
flow of 100 gal/person/day and a BOD5 loading of 0.2
lb/person/day. The upstream characteristics of the receiving waters
are:
stream flow rate =
20 cfs and BOD5 = 2 mg/L
The water quality
standards require the in-stream BOD5 to be less than 7
mg/L in this stretch of the river.
The minimum BOD
removal efficiency that the treatment...

. Suppose a vertical pipe is to be used as part of a system to
manually cycle nutrients upward from the floor of a lake. (Many
lakes do this naturally, some do not. Green Lake, near Syracuse,
NY, is one such lake.) A pump is to be installed on the lake floor
at the base of the pipe. The base of the pipe will have a diameter
of 9 cm. The nozzle of the pipe at the top will have...

Remember, a larger numeral preceding a smaller numeral means
addition, so LX is 60. A smaller numeral preceding a larger numeral
means subtraction, so XL is 40.
