Brackish water at 12°C with total dissolved solid content of TDS = 780 ppm (a salinity of 0.078 percent on mass basis) is to be used to produce fresh water with negligible salt content at a rate of 280 L/s. Determine the minimum power input required. Also, determine the minimum height to which the brackish water must be pumped if fresh water is to be obtained by reverse osmosis using semipermeable membranes.
