How many drops of oil does it take to pollute a gallon of water?
A standard measure of oil pollution in water is 10 ppm (10 parts oil per 1,000,000 parts water). As a gallon of water weights 10 lbs (Imperial gal) or 8 lb (US) gal) the weight od a gallon is about 4.54 kg, or 4540 gm and there are usually thought to be 40 drops in a ml a drop of oil weighs about 0.02 gm.
So 1 drop in gallon would be 0.02 gm in 4540 gm or 1 gm in 225000 gm (4 ppm). Indicating that 2.5 drops would pollute 1 gallon of water to the 10 ppm level
So 1 drop in gallon would be 0.02 gm in 4540 gm or 1 gm in 225000 gm (4 ppm). Indicating that 2.5 drops would pollute 1 gallon of water to the 10 ppm level

The correct answer is 1.6 gallons per flush for newer more efficient toilets, up to 4 or more gallons per flush for older toilets.
There are 20 metric drops to a ml. There are 1000 ml to a L This gives us 20000 drops to a L 1 US gallons = 3.785 liters 1 Imperial gallons = 4.546 liters 1 US gallons = 75708 metric drops 1 Imperial gallons = 90922 metric drops
According to the U.S.G.S. the average size of water droplet from a bathroom or kitchen faucet is about 1/4 of a milliliter (or CC), or 4,000 drops per liter; and about 0.0169 fl oz or 15,140 drops per gallon. Some science measurements from droppers measure a drop much smaller, at 1/20th of a CC p…er drop, making the number of drops per gallon much higher. 20 drops/CC X 30 CC/fl oz X 128 fl oz/Gal = 76800 drops/gal In the end, it depends on the size of the drop as to how many drops there are in a gallon. For household leaks, 3-4 drops/CC is much more likely than 20-24 drops/CC that is often cited for scientific purposes. ( Full Answer )
Facts: 120 drops = 5mL 1 gallon = 3785 mL . 90840 Drops in 1 Gallon . If a faucet dripped once a second how many gallons of water would it waste? It would waste 347 Gallons of water a year!

Water is heavier An oil molecule is heavier than a water molecule. But a gallon of water is heavier than a gallon of oil because water is denser, meaning the molecules are closer together. Therefore, there are more molecules in a gallon of water than in a gallon of oil, making it heavier. If yo…u have ever tried an experiment with water and oil, the oil will always be on the top because it is more lighter with less density. ( Full Answer )

Wikipedia says that a metric drop of a fluid is 1/20 mL, which is 1/20000 L.\n. \nIn one gallon, there are 3.7854 L.\n. \nSo by dividing the 3.7854 L by the 1/20000 L of a drop, the result gives 75,708 drops.\n. \nThis can change as there are different size drops.
Its like asking how many pigs in one ton. The number will depend on the density of , surface tension, size, shape, and flow rate of the liquid. 1 mL is +/- twenty drops of H2O.. 1gallon = 3785.4 ml = 75708 dps.

No because fish actually eat algae. Answer: Some algae are prolific producers of oil but this oil is usually contained in the algae. When algae are in water which is eutrophied (has lots of nutrients) they can reproduce in great numbers. When the food is gone or the weather changes these algae di…e and clump up in algal blooms. These are rotting masses of algae. The decomposing algae can release oil into the water. ( Full Answer )
There isn't enough information to answer your question. What is the conduit by which the water will be passing through? 1/2" copper, 3/4" PEX, etc.
A few tablespoons is enough to drown you, but you could not possibly drink a 'fatal dose' of water. Your stomach would not hold it.

If a ton of olives makes thirty gallons of olive oil, and the average olive is 10 grams (probably a little high) then there are 10,000 olives in thirty gallons and thus 333 olives in a single gallon.
Well think about it. how much is a pound? A pound is about 23kg. 1L of oil weighs about 25 grams. Now you might think im stupid, but think about it. In cars you put oil. If oil weighed a lot, then your car would sink into the cement. A gallon is exactly 2.3L. So after doing all the math a pound of o…il is about 2 gallons of oil. Look at it this way. Place your mom on a scale, and it should read around 236 pounds. Oil is in your moms skin. However, with all that sweat, the oil is washed off, and thus she has dry skin. When you re weigh her, she now weighs 240 pounds. That's because she had a cheeseburger, but besides the fact, the oil that was washed out doesnt weigh a lot. If you don't believe me, ask SunCor the Oil drilling company. ( Full Answer )
It can be as low as just 6 gallons to more than 20. It depends on the amount of dirt you are attempting to clean and the surface area of the car. Generally speaking, you could get away with just 6 gallons to a small sized sedan.

If it is an older model, about 2-3 gallons. . Newer, water saving models typically use less than one gallon per flush.
That depends on the car and how many eventually get made. If you think about it, water is used in almost every manufacturing process. So, if a large machine that welds cars required 1000 gallons when it was made, you could say that if 1000 cars were made, they each took 1 gallon of water to be mad…e themselves. Also, how far cars have to travel after being made, it takes a lot of water to pump and refine the fuel required to move a car from the manufacturer to the dealer. You also have to include how much water the workers drank while putting that car together. ( Full Answer )

That's going to depend on . . . -- the starting temperature of the water -- the target temperature of the water -- how fast you want it to get there -- the efficiency of the heater you use
Water will NOT help remove marijuana from your system. Marijuana is fat-soluble; it stores itself in your fat cells. So water does nothing to remove it from your system. See the Related Question below.
You need to know the average depth of the pool. the depth of the deep end plus the depth of the shallow end divided by 2 will give an average. The formula for estimating the gallons of water is in a pool is; length times width times average depth times the multiplier 7.5 for a rectangle pool; 6.…7 for a oval or free form pool. with this formula a rectangle pool 14X42 6 feet deep end and 3 feet shallow end will be approx. 19,845 gallons ( Full Answer )
7.2 gallons of water, but that is rather inefficient. You would do much better with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) because you only need 0.8 gallons of it.
In general, oil will float on the water surface. That is, it will spread out in a layer on the top of the water. This is because oil is less dense than water, and is immiscible with it (meaning it doesn't mix with the water). So if you think about it, the question is ambiguous. The answer does no…t depend on the volume of water (e.g. "gallons") but rather on the surface area (e.g. square feet, sq miles, etc). For example you could have a very deep lake that contains many hundreds of thousands of gallons of water, but if the perimeter of the lake is very small, the oil may cover the entire lake. Conversely, a puddle in a parking lot may be only an inch deep, but if the puddle extends across the entire parking lot, it may contain relatively few gallons of water, but the oil may only cover a small fraction of it if the size of the puddle is very very large. So the quest really is, how THICK will a layer of oil be if it spreads out on the water surface. Knowing this, you can calculate the amount of surface AREA that a quart of oil will spread out over. I like to do my calculations in metric, but I'll convert back into English units for the result. Assume that the oil makes a 1 mm film over the surface. (About 1/25th inch) Some conversions: 1 mm = 0.1 cm 1 quart = 946 mL = 946 cm 3 The area the oil would take up is the volume divided by the thickness: A = 946 cm 3 /0.1 cm = 9460 cm 2 So that's your estimated answer, but now let's convert it into something more meaningful. 1 m = 100 cm, so 1 m 2 = 10,000 cm 2 So 9460 cm 2 = 0.946 m 2 Rounding up slightly, we can say that this is close to 1 square meter, which is close to 1 square yard (i.e. 9 square feet). So if the oil is 1/25th of an inch thick, the quart of oil will cover about one square yard of water (regardless of how DEEP the water is). But remember, this was just a guess at the thickness of the oil. Additionally it assumes that the oil sticks together in a film and does not disperse. If the oil is 10 times thinner (i.e. 0.1 mm) then the area covered will be ten times as great (i.e. 10 sq yards or 90 square feet)! ( Full Answer )
I take it you mean "how many drops of water in a gallon"?:)) . +== . Then define the volume of a "drop"! :-)
This is one example of water pollution. Water pollution can be accidental or intentional, and could include oil, sewage, dyes, or any kind of other chemical that is not supposed to be there. In some cases, very hot or cold water can even be considered a kind of pollution.
This is impossible to answer without more information. An inch and a half in what space? In a square meter? Over the earth?
First off the pollutants contained in il refinery waste water include oils and grease (generally referred to as ether soluble material), solids, inorganic salts, organics (phenol, benzene, aromatics, etc.) and temperature. These materials are removed in the following manner: . Oils and Greases:… The water is allowed to settle in large tanks. The oils and greases rise and are skimmed off the top of the water. . Solids: The water is allowed to settle in large tanks. The solids sink and are collected at the bottom by scrapers . Organic materials: These components are responsible for taste and odor problems, fish toxicity and similar problems. They are removed by activated sludge systems which allow bacteria to eat up the contaminants. The bacteria are then removed for disposal leaving clean water behind. . Inorganic salts: Some of these which contain nitrogen are removed by the activated sludge, others can be removed by activated carbon or eliminated by in-plant controls which stop their discharge. . Temperature: The heat is removed from the water with heat exchangers before the effluents leave the refinery operating units ( Full Answer )
There is no single correct answer to this question. Motorhome size varies significantly, as do personal habits and methods of washing. Internet information sites vary greatly on estimates of water useage for washing vehicles. Sites or blogs emphasizing water conservation tend to assume worst possibl…e case. One such site assumes 17 gallons per minute used continuously for 45 minutes, yielding an exagerated use of 765 gallons. Most people wash with a hose and a spray nozzle that is OFF unless wetting or rinsing, and which also restricts gpm flow while increasing water velocity. For the same reasons, pressure washers should reduce water use further. The Atlanta Metropolitan Transit webpage states use of 200 gallons to wash a transit bus, being similar in size to some motorhomes, but do not state whether this is hand-washing or automated washing. It is generally acknowledged that hand washing uses more water than automated washing, but the automated wash industry tends to exaggerate the savings. Politifacts website demonstrates this exaggeration, yet is perhaps suspect in minimizing water use. If you are on a public water system, your home or business has a water meter. Check the meter reading before and after washing your motorhome and you will have an accurate measure based on the size of your motorhome and your methods. If on a private well, you can buy a flow meter and make the same measurement. Patrick ( Full Answer )

When one gallon of water is drained from the full water storage tank the water level drops to the level shown below About how many gallons of water are in the full storage tank?
You forget that we can't see what's "shown below" in the book or homework sheet from which you copied the question. You haven't told us what that level is, or anything about the shape or dimensions of the tank. We don't have squat for information that's needed to answer the question with.

Yes. A gallon is a unit of volume. Therefore, a gallon of anything will always take up the same space.
People throw lots of garbage into the water, that is one example. Factories throw acids into water, which is another kind too. So it means that all the waste that is thrown in the water causes water pollution
