Project Title: Design Of a Water Purification System



At this time there are many water purification systems on the open market. They range from the type that attaches to your kitchen faucet to the kind the sit on top of a pitcher. They all have different ways in which they purify the water you drink. All of them are very complicated and work somewhat differently, producing various results. In order to complete this project we will calculate the separation of particles per milliliter for each purification system, then we will determine the rate of purification per minute value and the rate of water-flow for each system. In addition to our mathematical calculations we will also measure the contents of contaminated water versus the contents of the purified water. We will also determine all of the chemicals used to purify the water and why they are used. By using all of the information above we will design a C++ program in which we can model how well a certain system purifies polluted water, and we can effectively determine what water purification system is the most effective.

The purpose of this project was to determine how water purification was processed. This project is to calculate the particles that occur in these chemical reactions and also determine the scientific approach to this problem. In this project we covered the ion content of the water through electrical pulse, measuring the voltage that passed through the water. The scientific approach to this project is to determine the different chemicals in water samples. The scientific process of this project is to determine the ion concentration of local ground water. We observed that the ion concentration of the water was directly related to the conductance of the water using a conductance apparatus.
