# 15000 Litres of Hard Water Was Passed Through a Zeolite Softener. the Exhausted Zeolite Required 120 Litres of Naci Having Stream of 30g/L of Nacl Calculate the Hardness of Water. - BE Electrical Engineering Semester 1 (FE First Year) - Applied Chemistry 1

#### Question

15000 litres of hard water was passed through a zeolite softener. The exhausted zeolite required 120 litres of NaCI having stream of 30g/l of NaCL Calculate the hardness of water.

#### Solution

1 litre of NgCl solution            = 30 gm of NaCl.
∴ 120 litre of NaCl                   = 120x30x103 mg of NaCl.
∴  3600 x103 mg of NaCl.        = 3600 x103 x 50/58.5

= 30.7692 xx  10^5 "mg of " CaC0_3  equivalent.
15000 litres of water                = 30.7692 xx10^5 " mg of" CaC0_3 equivalent.
∴ 1 litres of water                    = (30.7692 xx10^5)/15000  = 205.1 ppm

∴  Hardness of water samQ.Ie = 205. 1 ppm

Is there an error in this question or solution?
