When the hot water in a certain upstairs bathroom is turned on, a series of 18 "ticks" is heard as the copper hot-water pipe slowly heats up and increases in length. The pipe runs vertically from the hot-water heater in the basement, through a hole in the floor 5.0 m above the water heater. The "tick" are caused by the pipe stic

Calculating formaldehyde losses (emissions) to atmosphere from a heated and open container of water?
Assume that you have a 1000L container of water open to atmosphere; the water is at an average year round temperature of 175 degrees F; the average ambient air temperature is 60 degrees F; and assume the static concentration of formaldehyde in the water is 100 mg/L. How would I calculate the potential loss of formaldehyde to
