Question details

Following is a diagram of the shirt-cleaning process used by the Floods of Suds One Day Laundry Services, Inc. The shirts are soaked in an agitated tub containing Whizzo, the Wonder Detergent, and are then wrung out and sent to a rinse stage. The dirty Whizzo is sent to a filter in which most of the dirt is removed, and the cleaned detergent is recycled back to join a stream of pure Whizzo, with the combined stream serving as the feed to the washtub. Whizzo Dirty Shirts Clean Shirts AGITATED TUB Whizzo 97.0% Whizzo Drain Waste FILTER Recycled Whizzo Data: 1. Each 100.0 lbm of dirty shirts contains 1.00 lbm of dirt. 2.
