Average ocean salinity is approximately a 3.5% solution of dissolved salts and ions (Cl, Na, Mg, Ca). Given that the density of water is 1 g/cm3, and that 1 cm3 = 1 ml in volume equivalents, determine the density of water in Kg/L. Dwater = ________ kg/ L a. What is the percent concentration of a salt solution in which 1 kg of salt is dissolved in 1 L of water (%concentration = mass of solute / mass of solvent x 100%). b. Determine the following concentrations of a saline solution in which 5 g of salt is dissolve in 1 liter of water: ppt __________ ppm_________ ppb__________ 4. A storage tank holds 500,000 gallons of water with an input of 50 cfs and output of 73 cfs. Determine the following: i. Inflow________ gpm ii. Outflow________ cms iii. Change in storage flux per unit time____________ cfs iv. How much water is gained or lost from the storage tank after 1.3 hours? ___________ gallons ___________ cubic feet ___________ kg 2...

### What students are saying

• 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.
