1 ENV 6015 Solution to Mixing Problem Set 1. A slug of dye (100 mg) is injected into a single tank with continuous mixing. The flow in and out of the tank is 0.5 gpm. The tank volume is 500 gallons. When will the dye concentration equal 26.8 ug/L? Solution: Q, C o Q, C 2 Q, C 1 M V 1 V 2 Mass balance : in - out = acc where : in = 0 because there is no more input () dt V C d QC 0 m m = where V M C m = at 0 t = at all points and volume V is constant. m m C dC dt V Q = ; and T 1 V Q = (by definition T is hydraulic residence time, HRT) = = t C V M C m m t 0 C dC dt T 1 Æ [] t m C V M C m C ln T t = = = V M ln C ln T t t = M V C ln T t t Where V = 500 gallons M = 100 mg

5 3. The data shown in the succeeding table represent concentration of dye following time of addition. Assume the data points can be connected by straight lines to provide a continuous representation of mass flow out of the tank. This data is typical of data generated for a resident time distribution study. How many pounds of dye were added to the tank if the tank volume was 53,000 gallons and the flow was 26,500 gallons/hr? Draw a concentration verses time curve, and a cumulative mass verses time curve for this data. Report the times when 10 %, 40 % and 90 % of the mass has exited the tank. Do
