Engineering 10 CEE Module B Yang Xia Individual Assignment #4 20851683 We name the seven test tubes to be 1 to 7 and the test results are as following. Test tube # 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Volume (100mL) 0.1 0.1 0.1 0.1 0.1 0.01 0.001 Results + + + + - - + Since the concentration C varies from 10 cells / 100mL to 30 cells / 100mL, we pick 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28 and 30 cells / 100mL for the concentration in order to graph vs. concentrations. We find λ = V×C for each test tube for each concentration and plug the values into the Poisson equation

Unformatted text preview: . For test tubes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7, the results are positive; . For test tubes 5 and 6, the results are negative; . Therefore, = We graph vs. concentrations and get the following chart. From the chart, we can tell that MPN is 0.2 cells / mL, which is 20 cells / 100mL. Comparing this to the undisinfected water bacterial concentration cells / L, which is cells / 100mL, the disinfection efficiency is N/N0 = 0.0002 = 2 , which is 4-log removal....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
