At an industrial plant, 30000 gal of Trichloroethylene was spilled accidentally into the subsurface. The subsurface consists primarily od sandy oil. The sandy oil is fully saturated and has a porosity of 0.35. Site characterization revealed that a dissolved phase TCE plume approximately 100ft long, 10 ft wide, and 3ft deep exist with and average concentration of 1000mg/l. Assume that adsorption and biodegradation process are negligible. Given that the density of TCE is 1.462g/cm3.what is total mass of spilled TCE,total pore volume,total TCE in dissolved phase and amount of free phase NAPL present in the aquifer?
