EVEG 3110 Name: __________________ Date: _______ b. What would be the minimum required width if the water in this problem was 25°C, instead of 15°C? c. If you designed the system for 15°C (as in part a) and then the plant received 30°C water, what percent of particles would be removed by the system, assuming no change to the particles themselves?

EVEG 3110 Name: __________________ Date: _______ 6. Horizontal shaft paddle wheels are used in a tapered flocculation basin comprised of three compartments. The power input to the paddles progressively decreases through the basin with the first compartment paddle driving with 156 W of power, the second compartment paddle with 20.0 W of power, and the final compartment paddle with 4.50 W of power. Each paddle wheel mixes a compartment 4.17 m deep, 4.17 m wide, and 4.17 m long. The normal water temperature is 15 °C, and the average flow rate is 16,000 m 3 /d. a. What is the mixing intensity in each of the three compartments? - Compartment 1: ______ - Compartment 2: ______ - Compartment 3: ______ b. If the influent water contains a nearly monodisperse (single-sized) particle size distribution of 20.0 μ m particles with a concentration of 1.8 ×10 5 particles/mL, what will be the average number of single particles in an aggregate leaving the first compartment?

    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.
