1 ENV 6015 Solutions to Diffusion Problem Set 1. Salt water containing 11700 mg/l of NaCl (0.2 mole per liter) lies beneath a one-foot lens of fresh water, which is essentially, salt free to begin with. Find the concentration of NaCl in the lens after 30 days contact. Assume a constant temperature of 15 o C. Solution: Given only diffusion mixing (no advection) The mass of dissolved NaCl is solved by Fourier series as + + × = + ..... i 25d exp 25 1 i 9d exp 9 1 i d exp ) C (C 0.811 C C o s 5 days - t (From Foundations of Environmental Engineering, Cooper, Dietz & Reinhart) also d i = diffusion coefficient; 2 i 2 i 4X t D π d × × = , where Di = Diffusivity (L 2 T -1 ) At 25 C.

2 2. The initial dissolved oxygen concentration of an acquiescent body of water 1-foot deep is 5.0 mg/L. Assume the rate of absorption of oxygen from the atmosphere is sufficiently fast to saturate the surface layer of the water in a relatively short period. Find the concentration after one week if the temperature of water remained constant at 15 o C.
