Step 1

We have to determine the theoretical oxygen demand for the following solutions:

1) 200mg/L of acetic acid (CH3COOH)

2) 30mg/L of ethanol (C2H5OH)

3) 50mg/L of glucose (C6H12O6)

Step 2

Theoretical oxygen demand is defined as the amount of oxygen calculated that is required to oxidize the compound to its final oxidation state.

Step 3

1) 200mg/L of acetic acid (CH3COOH)

On oxidation, Acetic acid is oxidised to carbon dioxide and water....
