A 100 mL sample of water is found to contain 1 mg of dissolved arsenic. Express the concentration of arsenic as: a) mg/L [10 mg/L] b) ppm (mass of arsenic per mass of solution) [10 ppm] c) gram-moles/L (often denoted as M) [0.00013 M] 2 Suppose the average concentration of SO 2 in an air sample is measured to be 400 g/m 3 at 25 C and 1 atm pressure. Does this exceed the (24 hr) air quality standard of 0.14 ppm? [0.153 ppm exceeds standard] 3. A nitrogen analysis of a wastewater sample gives the following results: Ammonia 30.0 mg/L of NH 3 Nitrite 0.10 mg/L of NO 2- Nitrate 1.50 mg/L of NO 3- Organic nitrogen 15.0 mg/L of nitrogen Find the concentration (mg/L) of total nitrogen (N) in the sample.Find the concentration (mg/L) of total nitrogen (N) in the sample....
