x8.1 #30. A tank contains 1000 L of pure water. Brine that contains 0.05 kg of salt per liter of
water enters the tank at a rate of 5 L/min. Brine that contains 0.04 kg of salt per liter of water
enters the tank at a rate of 10 L/min. The solution is kept thoroughly mixed and drains from the
tank at a rate of 15 L/min. How much salt is in the tank (a) after minutes and (b) after one t

hour?

## Solution. (a) We have the usual equation:

dS

dt
= (rate in) , (rate out) ;

where ( ) is the amount of salt in the tank at time . The rate in is given as
S t t

## rate in = (0 05 kg/L)(5 L/min) + (0 04 kg/L)(10 L/min) = 13

: :
20 kg/min :

But, the rate out depends on the amount of salt already in the tank. Note that the total amount
of water owing in and owing out is the same. Thus, there will always be 1000 L of water in the
tank. So,  
rate out = 1000kgL (15L/min) = 200
S 3 kg/min S

We also have that at the initial time (0) = 0 because pure water contains no salt. Therefore, we

Since the right hand side of Equation (1) is continuous, then the left hand side is continuous
and so, if 130 , 3 is not the same sign for all , then it must be 0 for some which is impossible
S t t

by the argument above. Therefore, 130 , 3 is always the same sign. Since 130 , 3 (0) = 130 0,

130 , 3 is always positive and so, 130 , 3 = j130 , 3 j. Thus, we take Equation (1) and
