A farmer applies 1350.0 kg of a fertilizer that contains 10.0% nitrogen to his fields each year. Fifteen percent (15.0%) of the fertilizer washes into a river that runs through the farm.If the river flows at an average rate of 0.4902 cubic feet per second, what is the additional concentration of nitrogen (expressed in milligrams of nitrogen per liter) in the river water due to the farmer's fertilizer?
