Question: a well stirred tank with a capacity of 10000 gallons...

Question details

A well stirred tank with a capacity of 10,000 gallons initially contains 1,000 gallons of solution in which 500 lbs of salt is dissolved. How long will it take to fill the tank and how many lbs of salt will be in the tank when it is full. The input flowrate is 100 gallons/min, the input salt concentration is 2lbs salt/gallon, and the output flowrate of the tank is 0 gallons/min. Solution density is independent of salt concentration.
