Ghidaoui Problem Set 2 Due at: 16:30; March 15 th 2012 at Lecture Theatre C Problem 1: Consider the test tube shown in figure 1 which is filled with stagnant water. A contaminant of concentration 100 g/m 3 is introduced at the left end of the pipe and is maintained at this value thereafter. The concentration at the right end is maintained at 0 g/m 3 ? Assume D= 10-9m 2 /s. a) Compute the steady state flux of the contaminant. b) Determine the steady state profile of contaminant concentration. Figure 1 Problem 2: Consider the water in the canal shown in figure 2. The width of the canal is 20m and the depth of water in it is 5m. The canal has a rectangular cross section. An oil spill of 20kg occurs suddenly and instantaneously (i.e., over a very short period of time). The current is assumed small. D=0.01m 2 /s.

    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.
