13 (a) (i) (ii) Explain a mathematical model to predict the impact of emissions through a stack and detail the data requirements and data source for the application of the model. [10] A Power plant with a once through cooling system proposes to draw cooling water at the rate of 400 Us from a river having a flow of 5 m /s. The temperature of river water is 27 °C and that of not water is 90 °C. It is proposed to -dispose the effluent into the same river at a distance 600m downstream of the intake point ensuring that the river water temperature will not exceed 30°C. Determine the-temperature to which the industry has to cool the water before -disposal. Assume that 5% of the water is lost during cooling process.
