Two tanks, A and B, each contain 5K gal of water. To each tank 150 gal of a chemical should be added, but in error the entire 300 gal are poured into tank A. Pumps are set to work to circulate the liquid through the two tanks at the rate of 100 gal/min (a) How long will it take for tank A to contain 200 gal of the chemical and tank B to contain 100 gal? (b) IS it theoretically possible for each tank to contain 150 gal?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
