Implicit differentiation is used in order to find the cubic feet of water dumped into Tampa Bay per hour from the Piney Point reservoir. To get to moles from cubic feet, a series of conversions is done while Le Chatelier’s principle explains how an increase in HPO4 2- (hydrogen phosphate) in Tampa Bay is going to affect algae growth. The rate of moles of HPO4 2- is analyzed as well as the consequences that come with dumping copious amounts of fertilizer water into an aquatic environment.
