Problem 70AE

In the United States, water used for irrigation is measured in acre-feet. An acre-foot of water covers an acre to a depth of exactly 1 ft. An acre is 4840 yd2. An acre-foot is enough water to supply two typical households for 1.00 yr. (a) If desalinated water costs \$1950 per acre-foot, how much does desalinated water cost per liter? (b) How much would it cost one household per day if it were the only source of water?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 70AE: (A)Here, we have to calculate the water cost per litre. We know 1 acre ft = 1233.48 m = 1.233 x 10 L 9 Therefore, Total cost \$1950 -6 The cost per litre is = total water 1.233 x 109L \$1581.5 x 10 -6 Thus, the desalinated water cost per liter is \$1581.5 x 10 (B) Here we have to calculate the cost of water for per day for each household Given...
