Prepared by George Tchobanoglous, H. Each problem has been worked out in detail, and where necessary additional material in the form of Instructors Notes is provided as shown in boxes. The additional material is furnished either for further guidance to the instructor for grading homework problems or to make corrections to the Problem Statement as written in the First Printing of the text. Where corrections to the Problem Statement are made, these corrections have been incorporated into the Second Printing of the text.
The alternative parameters are provided to extend the usefulness of the problems in future assignments. In most cases, a solution has been worked in detail for only one set of values. When alternative values are assigned by the instructor for which an answer has not been provided, the same computational procedure applies as used in the worked solution. Because of the magnitude of the fifth edition, a number of persons contributed to the preparation of this soutions manual; their assistance is acknowledrd gratfully.
The contributors are listed alphabetically on the title page. Although this manual has been reviewed carefully, the authors will be appreciative if any errors that have been found are brought to our attention. Other comments that will be helpful in improving the usability of the problems or the manual will also be appreciated.

Determine the reaction order and the reaction rate constant using the integration method. Develop the data needed to plot the experimental data functionally for reactant 1, assuming the reaction is either first or second order. Time, min. Determine the reaction rate coefficient. For zero order kinetics the substrate utilization rate would remain constant.
Because the utilization rate is not constant for reactant 1, the reaction rate is not zero order. Assume first order kinetics are applicable and compute the value of the rate constant at various times. Because the reaction rate constant is essentially constant, it can be concluded that the reaction is first order with respect to the utilization of reactant 1.
Determine the activation energy using Eq. Insert know values into Eq. Write a materials balance for a complete-mix reactor. Use the generic rate expression for chemical reactions given in Table Determine the temperature coefficient T using Eq. Comment An explicit expression for the concentration C cannot be obtained as a function of time.
The concentration C at any time t must be obtained by successive trials. Determine the corresponding reactor volume required for 92 percent conversion at a flowrate of 0. Demonstrate that the maximum treatment efficiency in a series of completemix reactors occurs when all the reactors are the same size. Determine efficiency for three reactors in series when the reactors are of the same size. Determine efficiency for three reactors in series when the reactors are not of the same size.
By extension it can be shown that the maximum treatment efficiency in a series of complete-mix reactors occurs when all of the reactors are of the same size. The influent concentration must be equal to the effluent concentration and the change with respect to distance is equal to zero by definition. From the plot in Step 7 the required values are: Rate. Because the effluent concentration C is directly proportional to Co for first order kinetics, the final concentrations are the same.
Because the two expressions are identical, for the given data the concentration in the second reactor is equal to zero. Sketch a family of curves to illustrate the effect of the recycle rato on the longitudinal concentration gradient.
Because QR drops out of the above expression, recycle flow has no effect for first or second order reactions. Starting with Eq. The expression for the effluent concentration for second-order removal kinetics without retardation is see Problem , Part 1 for plug-flow reactor : C.
The impact is much greater for first order reactions. Set up a computation table to determine the sum of milliequivalents per liter for both cations and anions for Sample 3, for example. Concentration Cation. Determine the mole fraction of each cation and anion in Sample 1 using Eq. Prepare a computation table to determine the summation term in Eq.
Continue the computation table from Part 1 to determine the activity for each ion using Eq. See More. Wastewater Engineering: An Overview 2. Constituents in Wastewater 3.

Plot the water depth versus time PROBLEM Instructors Note: The first six problems are designed to illustrate the application of the mass balance principle using examples from hydraulics with which the students should be familiar. The following analysis is based on reactant 1 2. Time, min 3. Solve Eq. Solve for E given the above values: E 8. The temperature difference is therefore 11 qC.
Use Eq. The general expression for reactors in series for first order kinetics is: a. For reactors of the same size the expression [Eq. For two reactors in series Co C2 b. For n complete-mix reactors in series the corresponding expression is given by Eq. The expression for an ideal plug flow reator is given in Eq. The rate of reaction is defined as retarded first order given in Eq. Complete-mix reactor VCMR b. Plot the ratio of volumes versus the fraction of the original substrate that is converted.
The two expressions derived above are identical. Sketch the generalized curve of conversion versus the recycle ratio. The expression for the effluent concentration for second-order removal kinetics without retardation is see Problem , Part 1 for plug-flow reactor : C b. Concentration - 3 - Sum - 4.
Determine the moles of the solutes. Determine the moles of the water. The mole fraction of calcium in Sample 1 is: 5. Determine the ionic strength of the wastewater using Eq.

Clean water is becoming a scarce resource. There is an increasing need to treat waste water, both in developed countries and emerging countries alike. New, large waste water treatment plants are continually being built in Latin America, Asia and Africa. However, in all those countries many waste water treatment plants have now severely aged and suffered various degrees of degradation — mostly due to biogenic corrosion in areal parts of confined pits in the plant or within the sewer network. Heavy abrasion and erosion of the concrete and prefabricated elements are often found at the bottom of the sewers. In general rules, these elements shall be replaced and reassembled properly by bonding them in place with an epoxy adhesive.
It is so fundamental that the United Nations passed a resolution recognizing it as a basic human right, a prerequisite for the recognition of all other rights. As the global population increases, so too does the demand for this indispensable building block of life. Freshwater supplies across the country, as around the world, are being stressed to a breaking point as industrial, agricultural, and municipal users all compete in the face of increasing scarcity.
Wastewater treatment systems are designed to treat water so it can be recycled safely back into the environment. Here are some of the biggest problems in wastewater treatment and the potential solutions that could fix them. Energy consumption is one of the biggest issues confronting wastewater plants. By incorporating these greener approaches and maintaining the water treatment systems currently in use, we can reduce the amount of energy used to treat wastewater.
All small wastewater treatment systems are designed such that their function is normally guaranteed for 12 months if run permanently at full load and if the operator and maintenance obligations are met. This period extends accordingly if they are used less. Alternatively, a tank with a larger sludge reservoir can be selected so that the sludge does not need to be disposed of so frequently. The existing concrete pit must be emptied and thoroughly cleaned.

Sewage treatment is the process of removing contaminants from municipal wastewater , containing mainly household sewage plus some industrial wastewater.
