4) Sudden admission of industrial waste reduces the pH.

Question 4

Consider the following statements:

a. Presence of nitrogen in a waste sample is due to the decomposition of proteins and carbohydrates.

b. When BOD/COD =0, waste water is toxic.

Which of the above statements are correct?

Question 5

Question 6

Following happens to be the operating data for conventional activated sludge treatment plant :
(i) Waste water flow=40000 m3/d
(ii) Influent BOD= 300mg/l
(iii) Effluent BOD=30 mg/l
(iv) Mixed liquor suspended solids(MLSS)=2000 mg/l
(v) Volume of aeration tank=10000 m3
The Food/Microorganism (F/M) ratio (in kg BOD per day/kg of MLSS) is

Question 7

An activated sludge aeration tank (length = 20.0 m; width = 15.0 m; effective liquid depth = 5 m) has the following parameter:
Flow = 0.08 m3/sec
Soluble BOD5 after primary settling = 120 mg/l
Mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS) = 2000 mg/l
Mixed liquor volatile suspended solids (MLVSS) = 1600 mg/l
30 minute settled sludge volume = 250 ml/l
Return sludge concentration = 1000 mg/l
The hydraulic retention time (in hrs) and sludge volume index (in ml/gm) will be
