## Homework Statement

The adsorbtion isotherm for the removal of a contaminant from waste water is givern by the langmuir equation: q=(bkC)/(1+bC) where q is the loading of contaminant of the adsorbent and C is the concentration of the contaminant in solution. Literature data gives values for the constants b and k of 1.16 and 130 respectively for the case where q is grains per lb and C is grains per gal . Determine the values for b' and k' for the Langmuir equation between loading q' in mg per g and C' in mg per dm^3 .

Data : 1 lb=7000 gr(grains)

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am sort of stuck as the 2 variables will have changes in their unis simultaneously, all I have done is to convert 1mg=0.01544 gr and 1 dm^3=0.220 gal .
