Rewrite the DE for the concentration of pollutant as dc ( t ) dt + f ( t ) V c ( t ) = f ( t ) p ( t ) V with c (0) = 0 This DE has the integrating factor μ ( t ) = e R ( f ( t ) /V ) dt With the integrating factor, the DE becomes d dt ( μ ( t ) c ( t )) = μ ( t ) f ( t ) p ( t ) V Joseph M.

Introduction Falling Cat 1 st Order Linear DEs Examples Pollution in a Lake Example 2 Mercury in Fish Modeling Mercury in Fish Basic Example: Pollution in a Lake 2 Solution: This example follows the model derived above with V = 10 5 , f = 100, and p = 5, so the differential equation for the concentration of pollutant is dc ( t ) dt = - f V ( c ( t ) - p ) = - 0 . 001( c ( t ) - 5) with c (0) = 0 This can be solved like we did by substitution for Newton’s Law of Cooling. Alternately, we use an integrating factor dc ( t ) dt + 0 . 001 c = 0 . 005 with μ ( t ) = e R 0 . 001 dt = e 0 . 001 t so d dt ( e 0 . 001 t c ( t ) ) = 0 . 005 e 0 . 001 t or e 0 . 001 t c ( t ) = 5 e 0 . 001 t + C Joseph M.

Introduction Falling Cat 1 st Order Linear DEs Examples Pollution in a Lake Example 2 Mercury in Fish Modeling Mercury in Fish Basic Example: Pollution in a Lake 3 Solution: From the integration before and multiplying by μ - 1 ( t ), c ( t ) = 5 + Ce - 0 . 001 t with c (0) = 0 Thus, the solution is c ( t ) = 5 - 5 e - 0 . 001 t . Solving c ( t ) = 2 = 5 - 5 e - 0 . 001 t gives e 0 . 001 t = 5 3 It follows that the concentration reaches 2 ppm when t = 1000 ln ( 5 3 ) 510 . 8 days. Joseph M.

### 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.
