Question 2

An industrial waste water enters a stream having a BOD concentration of 10 mg/l and a flow of 20 m3/sec. If the flow of waste water is 1.5 m3/sec & its BOD concentration is 250 mg/l, then the BOD concentration in the stream at a point downstream of the point of confluence of waste water with the stream will be?

Question 3

Question 4
