    As a result of a chemical spill, benzene is evaporating at the rate of 1 gram per minute into a room that is 6 m * 6 m * 3 m in size and has a ventilation of 10 m3/min.
    a- Compute the steady state concentration of benzene in the room.
    b- Assuming the air in the room is initially free of benzene, compute the time necessary for benzene to reach 95 percent of the steady-state concentration.
