purpose of ESP is to catch small particles, its efficiency η is measured by the percentage of removal. η = amountremoved amount enetering = C ¿ C out C ¿ = 1 C out C ¿ =1- ¿ 1 exp ( W e L Ud ) SPL Equation As is sound let’s say a bulldozer emits a sound level of 90 dBA, in µbars the sound levels if two bulldozers were running side by side. Since they are the same noise level, they cancel the second dozer out so the equation would be 90-90 = 0. Since its 0 the µbars sound be 0.0002 (Nathanson & Schneider, 2015). Favorite My favorite part of this course dealt with Chapter 13, air pollution, and control in our textbook. I believe this is because it relates to my current career as a Heavy-equipment mechanic, for I deal with troubleshooting, diagnosing, and repairing emissions systems to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations regularly. I was intrigued by the history in which the Clean Air Act has evolved over the years, as well as how emissions have changed. This includes stationary sources such as power plants as much as it involved vehicles. Conclusion George Bernard once said, “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” Without the EPA making changes and creating programs such as the EVT, we would continue to destroy our world and all that lives within. We would not have ways to monitoring pollutants like ammonia and mercury. We would not have established waste management programs or care about water flow rates within waste lines because they would not exist. Dumps would still be a legal way to dispose of solid waste instead
UNIT VIII ESSAY 8 of controlled landfills nor would there be site remediation technology for hazardous waste. The air would not have things like ESPs or emissions to combat pollutants.
