    A lake with constant volume 10X10^6 m^3 is fed by a pollution-free stream with flow rate 50 m^3/s. A factory dumps 5m^3/s of a nonconservative waste with concentration 100 mg/L into the lake. The pollution has a reaction rate coefficient K of 0.25/day. Assuming the pollution is well mixed in the lake, find the steady-state concentration of pollution in the lake.
