Sample text

If a laboratory analysis includes the weight of the oxygen atoms and reports the nitrate concentration in a water sample as 33 ppm NO3/L (not NO3–N/L, as the drinking water standard is defined), does the analysis indicate that the water source is in compliance with the federal drinking water standard? 53 mmol/L The drinking water standard is not based on the concentration of NO3 but on the concentration of nitrogen that is in the form of NO3. Since each anion of NO3 contains one atom of nitrogen and three atoms of oxygen, each mole of NO3 will contain 1 mol of N and 3 mol of O.

According to the ideal gas law, a v/v ratio is equivalent to a ratio of the number of pollutant gas molecules (npol) to the number of normal air molecules (nair), or npol/nair in the sample volume. 220 kg, air mass depends strongly on the actual pressure and humidity. However, 1 L of water is almost exactly 1 kg under all normal environmental conditions. 696 2. See Example 2 for a sample calculation. The pollution laws and regulations in the United States typically reference their air pollutant limits to an ambient temperature of 20–25°C and an ambient air pressure of 1 atm.

3. Drinking water standards, which apply both to groundwater used as a public water supply and to water delivered to the public from drinking water treatment plants. Drinking water standards are chosen to protect public health. * The species H+, OH−, H3O+, H 5 O +2 , and so on, can all be derived from water molecules only. Species such as Cl−, Na+, MnO 4−, Ca(OH)2, PbOH−, Cd2+, and so on, clearly cannot. , acid or basic conditions harmful to certain designated water uses) cannot occur from water alone; they require that acidic or basic substances be added to water in sufficient quantity to change the pH beyond its normal environmental range of about pH 6–9.
