Example text

Wastewater treatment and unit operations involve a large number of process control calculations. Most of these calculations are based upon the basic math principles that were ATHEMATICAL covered in Volume l of the handbook series. In this chapter, we cover intermediate mathematical operations-practical operations that wastewater operators are required to use, many of them on a daily basis, in actual plant operating situations. Along with an explanation of each math operation, several sample problems are included.
