Homework NO (1)
2.4) An analysis for suspended solids is run as follows: (1) a fiberglass filter is dried to
constant mass of 0.137 g; (2) 100 ml of a sample is drawn through the filter; and (3)
the filter and residue are placed in a drying over at 104 oC until a constant mass of
1.183 g is reached determine the suspended-solids concentration in milligrams per
liter.

2.12) the reaction of soda ash (Na2 CO3) with calcium sulfate in water is represented
by the following chemical statement:
Na2Co3 + CaSO4

CaCo3 + Na2SO4

Assuming that this reaction is complete and that there is 153 mg/L of CaSO4 initially
presen, what is the mass of soda ash that must be added to (a) 1 L of the water and
(b) 10.000 m of the water to complete the reactions.

## 2.14) express the following concentrations of elements and compounds as

milligrams per liter of CaCO3
95 mg/L Ca2 +

87 mg/L Mg2+

## 2.16) determine the concentration of the following ions in solution at equilibrium

with the solid at 25oC.
Ca2+ + 2OH- Ca (OH)2
Mg2+ + CO32- MgCO3
Ca2+ + SO42- CaSO4

2.19) A sample of water was analyzed for common ions with the result shown below
HCO3- = 300 mg/L
Na+ = 115 mg/L
SO42- = 240 mg/L
Mg2+ = 36.6 mg/L
CI- = 71.0 mg/L
Ca2+ = 100 mg/L
Construct a bar diagram in milliequivalents per liter for this water.

## 2.24) A solids analysis is to be conducted on a sample of wastewater. The procedure

is as follows:
1. A Goch crucible and filter pad are dried to a constant mass of 25.439 g.
2. Tow hundred millilters of a well-shaken sample of the wastewater is passed
through the filter
3. The crucible, filter, pad, and removed solids are dried to a constant mass of
25.645 g.
4. One hundred milliliters of the filtrate (water passing through the filter in (2)
above) is placed in an evaporation dish that ahd been preweighed at 275.419
g.
5. The sample in (4) is evaporated to dryness and the dish and residue are
weighed at 276.227 g.
6. Both the crucible from (3) and the evaporation dish from (5) are placed in a
muffle furnace at 600oC for an hour. After cooling. The mass of the crucible is
25.501 g and the mass of the dish is 275.944 g.

## 2.43) An analysis for BOD5 is to be run on a sample of wastewater. The BOD is

expected to range from 50 to 35, and the dilution are prepared accordingly. In each
case, a standard 300-mL BOD bottle is used. The data are recorded below.

## (a) Determine the BOD5 of the wastewater.

(b) If you know that the oxygen utilization rate is 1.21 per day at 20oC, what will
be the IOD3 if the test id tun at 30oC?

2.56) A sample of wastewater is analyzed for coliform organisms by the multipletube fermentation method. The results of the confirmed test are as follows:
