Chapter 3 we have input rate = 5 (gal / min) · 0 . 001% 100% =5 · 10 5 (gal / min) , output rate = 5 (gal / min) · x ( t ) (gal) 10 , 000 (gal) =5 · 10 4 x ( t ) (gal / min) , and the equation for x ( t ) becomes dx dt =5 · 10 5 5 · 10 4 x dx dt +5 · 10 4 x =5 · 10 5 . This is a linear equation. Solving yields x ( t )=0 . 1+ Ce 5 · 10 4 t =0 . 1+ Ce 0 . 0005 t . Using the initial condition, x (0) = 10 , 000 (gal) · 0 . 01% 100% = 1 (gal) , we Fnd the value of C : 1=0 . 1+ Ce 0 . 0005 · 0 C =0 . 9 . Therefore, x ( t )=0 . 1+0 . 9 e 0 . 0005 t and the concentration of chlorine, say, c ( t ), in the pool at time t is c ( t )= x ( t ) (gal) 10 , 000 (gal) · 100% = x ( t ) 100 %=0 . 001 + 0 . 009 e 0 . 0005 t % . After 1 hour (i.e., t =60m in), c (60) = 0 .
