If a human consumes about 1.9 L of water a day, how many kilograms of Epsomite ((MgSO4)(7H2O)) would be needed to be dehydrated to support a crew of 5 for a 1 week mission on Mars? Assume the density of water 1.0 g/mL.

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1


Consumes water per day = 1.9 L

Human consumes water per day = 1.9 L,

For seven days = 1.9 L × 7

For seven days = 13....
