*Question-1(25 points)*

Compute the dissolved concentration of carbon monoxide (CO) that would be in equilibrium with a gas phase containing 0.1ppm CO by volume. Express the determined concentration in mg CO/L.

*Question-2 (50 points)*

- Using the charge balance equation and the excel spreadsheet approach; determine the range of pH for a water in a cloud that has equilibrated with 1.0 ppm by volume SO
_{2}. The following is given:

- Calculate the pH of the same water using Visual MINTEQ.

*Question-3 (25 points)*

A groundwater supply is initially at pH 8.0 and contains 2*10^{-3} eq/L alkalinity. If the alkalinity is all attributable to the carbonate system, determine whether the water is under-saturated or supersaturated with respect to atmospheric CO_{2}
