QUESTION: 21

A river is the source of water for water supply to a town. Its water is very turbid and polluted. The correct sequence of steps for freating the river water would be for treating the river water would be

Solution:
• Coagulation and Flocculation

Coagulation and flocculation are often the first steps in water treatment. Chemicals with a positive charge are added to the water. The positive charge of these chemicals neutralizes the negative charge of dirt and other dissolved particles in the water. When this occurs, the particles bind with the chemicals and form larger particles, called floc.

• Sedimentation

During sedimentation, floc settles to the bottom of the water supply, due to its weight. This settling process is called sedimentation.

• Filtration

Once the floc has settled to the bottom of the water supply, the clear water on top will pass through filters of varying compositions (sand, gravel, and charcoal) and pore sizes, in order to remove dissolved particles, such as dust, parasites, bacteria, viruses, and chemicals.

• Disinfection

After the water has been filtered, a disinfectant (for example, chlorine, chloramine) may be added in order to kill any remaining parasites, bacteria, and viruses, and to protect the water from germs when it is piped to homes and businesses.

QUESTION: 90

An oil of specific gravity 0.9 has viscosity of 0.28 stokes at 38ºC. What will be its viscosity in Ns/ m2?

Solution:

Concept:
Kinematic viscosity (ν) is defined as the ratio of dynamic viscosity (μ) to density (ρ) of fluid.
ν = μ/ρ
SI unit of kinematic viscosity is m2/s. CGS unit is stoke.
1 stoke = 1 cm2/s = 10-4 m2/s

Calculation:
Given: Specific gravity = ρ/ρwater = 0.9
ρ = 0.9 × 1000 kg/m3
ν = 0.28 stoke = 0.28 × 10-4 m2/s
ρ = 0.28 × {10^{ - 4}} × 0.9 × 1000 = 0.0252~ N.s/m^2
