Assignment #1Round answers to an appropriate number of digits and include proper units.
A labelled diagram is required for each question.
Answer the following problems, providing details on all calculations. The #, ##, ### or
#### will represent the LAST 1,2,3 or 4 digits of your student number. 000837359
Question 1) Air Pollution Mass Balance
The City of A is approximately 25 km (width) by 40 km (length). The average wind speed
is 15 kph from the northwest and flows through an altitude of approximately 1 km. If the
average annual particulate concentration in the city is 57 ug/m , what is the annual
quantity of pollutants discharged into the air above the City of A? (Report final answer in
tonnes per year) Assume the concentration of particulates coming into Hamilton is ‘0’;
and accumulation of particulates is 37359 kg/d. Use a block diagram to illustrate your
Question 2) Dissolved Oxygen in Water
An industrial WWTP discharges into a large river 0.42 m /s of industrial effluent with an
ultimate BOD concentration of 273 mg/L and a D.O. concentration of 1.9 mg/L at a
temperature of 20∘C. The velocity of the river is 0.75 m/s. Upstream of the point of
discharge, the river has a temperature of 8∘C, an ultimate BOD of 17 mg/L and a flow
rate of 5.1 m3/s. Use a diagram to illustrate the problem. State all assumptions.
the DO concentration at the point of discharge
the DO deficit at the point of discharge
the ultimate BOD at the point of discharge
