An activated sludge tank treats 1 MGD from the primary clarify and has an X of
2200 ppm SS. The water euent is 0.9 MGD. 1.0 MGD of the sludge is recycled back into the tank
and has an [SS] of 3980 ppm. The concentration of the BOD exiting the primary clarier is 200
ppm.
(a) What are Qw and Xw?
(b) What are Qc and Xc?
