Box Model for Steady-State Pollution Concentration

A Power plant is the main point source of SO2 emissions for a 25 km2 area. Estimate the steady-state concentration of SO2 for this area from this point source given the following temperature data. Windspeed= 5km/hr. The concentration of SO2 is 111.1 g/s.

Height (in meters) Temperature (K)
0 300
500 294
1000 288
1500 300

Solution Summary

Steady-state pollutant concentration is calculated using a box model with the aid of emission rate and windspeed data.
