About 900lbs . (That's about 100 gallons) -My camels drank up to 130 liters at the most. This water gets stored in the blood stream (diluting the blood) after (just after they drink it) being stored in the stomach lining for about 24 hours.
Answer . Most of Los Angeles water came from the Serra Nevada via the Los Angeles Aquedect. The other major aqueducts are the California Aqueduct and the Colorado River Aqueduct.
An aqueduct is a structure that carries water through Rome andGreece. It leads pipes to houses to sinks to water fountains andanything that has water coming out with a button. Aqueducts were large water pipes which were used to transport water to where it was needed. An aqueduct is a manmade bridge …carrying or funneling water from a distant and higher source. Romans built many to service their communities. Originally a Roman invention, it was a water channel, built on arches where necessary to keep a constant gradient to promote even flow, to transport water from a water source and bring it to a town to be used for domestic purposes, bath houses, fountains, etc. In the ancient Rome, people also had water just like us. The water was transported by huge structures of stone, brick and special volcanic cement, which held the water and brought it from the hills to the city.Rome had 11 major aqueducts, which supplied Rome for over 500 years. The Romans had built the first aqueduct in 312 B.C., and they called it Aqua Appia, while the last one was called Aqua Alexandrina, and it was built in 226 A.D.The aqueducts, together they could give well over one million cubic meters of water per day, and when the population was over a million, each inhabitant could get one cubic meter of water per day, which is more than what we usually use nowadays.All of the aqueducts were built between 312 B.C. and 226 A.D. Rome had 11 major aqueducts. The longest one was called Anio Novus (which means New Year), and it was 59 miles long. The aqueducts were built by slaves. They used stone, brick and special volcanic cement, making such strong structures that some still stand today.Most of the aqueducts were built underground, where it could take water from the water tables, where the water is cleaner than 'outside'. Only 30/260 miles were external aqueducts!Nobody is sure of who first invented the aqueducts, but as the first one began its construction in 312 B.C., it might have been Appius Claudius Caecus, because he was the one who ruled Rome at that time, but it could have been also a pauper that gave the idea or inspiration to start building aqueducts.An aqueduct is a small, artificial channel that is used forconveying water.

I assume you mean sodium chloride salt (NaCl). In that case, you would refer to the solubility of sodium chloride in water which is 35.7 grams per 100 mL of water at 0ï¿½ C. However, this amount will be increased to approximately 39 g/100mL if the water is brought to boiling. If the solution is p…ressurized then the water may reach temperatures far above its boiling point and conversely the amount of NaCl which can be dissolved would increase far beyond its standard pressure and temperature saturation point. Salts are an ionic compounds that more specifically dissociate in water rather than dissolve. Sodium chloride forms a sodium cation (Na + ) and the chlorine anion (Cl - ) when it dissociates in water. (MORE)

Humans always need water. For themselves, for drinking andcleaning. For their animals, for growing plants. If there aren'tgood sources nearby, water has to be moved in somehow, and this canbe done with an aqueduct. Before the invention of water pipes andpumps, the only way to move water was by letti…ng it flow withgravity through dug and built canals, trenches and ditches. Andsince water can't run uphill very well, if you wanted to get thewater across a valley you had to build a sort of bridge with asteady slope to it to carry the water across. the function of it isthat it has a water system to let water pass to the crops Aqueducts are water pipes. They are used to carry water from oneplace to another. (MORE)
No, they were stone built and the water was designed to flow slowly as the gradient was slight, there would be minimal erosion due to flow.
Reservoirs, hence originally rainfall. the viaducts were puposely built high to keep up the hydrostatic pressure as pumps had not yet been invented in anything resembling the modern types.
Answer . The shuttle astronauts carry some of the water needed for themselves and also deliver water to the International Space Station. Over a year 2200 liters are transported at a cost of $US11000 per liter. The ISS also has a Russian built device that processes the humidity in the air and cond…enses it for drinking and other purposes. On the shuttle, water is produced as a byproduct of the orbiter's fuel cells converting hydrogen and oxygen to electricity. Because of the massive cost of transporting water, NASA is working on a system that converts many of the astronauts' body fluids - and, yes, that includes urine - into drinkable water.

Some Roman aqueducts cross water, the most famous being the Pont du Gard near Nimes in France.
The Edmund G. Brown California Aqueduct is the state's largest and longest water transport system, stretching 444 miles from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta in the north to Lake Perris in Southern California. The aqueduct and associated channels supply water for about one million acres of farmland.… Pitched during Brown's tenure as governor, the SWP was initially sold to the public in 1960 for an estimated total cost of $1.75 billion in state bonds-a misleading and low-balled figure. Construction began in 1961 and though still incomplete, the total cost for the project has grown over $4.3 billion for twenty-five dams and reservoirs, eighteen pumping plants, 683 miles of aqueducts, and eight hydro-electric power plants.

An aqueduct was not something a person "went to"; it was a water moving system. Loosely you could consider the people who used the water as those who went to an aqueduct. These would be farmers who needed water for irrigation or wealthy city dwellers who wanted running water in their homes. However …these people had to pay a tax in order to tap in and used the water.

you must turn all of the knobs in the other direction and push the wooden aqueducts together.
An animal cell does not take in too much of water per se. This is because the animal cell tries to maintain a definite molarity of constituents in its cytoplasm for proper cellular functioning. Porers in the cell membrane that depend on ATPs for working, close up, stopping absorption of water. … However, when placed in a medium / environment that has higher concentration of water (Lesser osmolarity than cytoplasm), water molecules are passively (without ATP expenditure) taken in due to the movement of water molecules according to diffusion gradient. When this happens, the cell swells. Water molecule intake is borne by the cell membrane only until it is able to stretch. Beyond this, the cell bursts as the cell membrane cannot bear the tension created by the swollen cell membrane. (MORE)
There is one main difference between the ancient aqueducts and our water systems is that the water from the aqueducts went directly to the people (or to a holding tank, as in Pompeii) Our water is piped like an aqueduct, but it goes through a filtration system to rid it of pollutants and harmful bac…teria.

A Chinook CH-47D can carry approximately 26,000 pounds. A British gallon of water (4.5 litres) weighs 10 pounds, so allowing for the carrying vessel, the answer is about 2000 to 2200 gallons
It doesn't take it from the ground, it carries it from the source to the consumer. An aqueduct is an open channel or half pipe.
To calculate the capacity of a pipe you need to first calculate the area and volume. So assuming your pipe has an inside dimension (ID) of 3 inches, you would use the following equation. ÏR 2 = area ÏR 2 xH = volume Ï=3.1416 Using inches as our unit R (radius) = half the diameter =… 1.5 inches H (height or length of pipe) = one foot of pipe = 12 inches Gives you the volume in cubic inches 1728 cubic inches per cubic foot (12x12x12) One cubic foot = 7.48 US gallons (RxR)x3.1416x12 (1.5x1.5)x3.1416x12 = 84.82 cubic inches 84.82/1728=.049 cubic feet .049 cubic feet x 7.48 US gallons per cubic foot = 0.36652 US gallons per foot of 3" ID pipe.

Why does it not matter how much water you add when dissolving the acid or when carrying the titration?
The titration equivalence point occurs when the acid present in the sample has been exactly neutralized by the volume of base added. Additional water added to the reaction vessel has no effect on the volume of base added.
What is it called when water vapor is measured in comparison to how much there is to how much there could be?
It is called the "relative humidity". The outside air today could have saturation (100% humidity). But is is actually 42% relative humidity. That's "how much there is compared to how much there could be".
B-52 carries on HSABs (each HSAB= 2000 lbs). External Load=18 Bombs Total = 45 Bombs. The B-52H will carry about 76,000 pounds of armaments and 310,000 pounds of fuel.
There is little consensus on the exact amount of water that flowed continuously in the nine+ two aqueducts from the Tiber river to Rome. The lowest was estimated at 85063 gallons per day to a high of 266978.35 gallons a day. Recent estimates put it at 158503.23 -176995 gallons with supply of 58.50…3 gallons in each of the 591 [ lacus] delivery point with consumption of 15.85-17.69 gallons per capita for 900 Romans at each delivery point.

No. Even tough the Romans were advanced in the handling of water, they did not have the technology for a water treatment plant such as we have today. Judging from the interpretation of some remains at Pompeii, the extra water was held in a large storage tank and released when needed. Incidentally, t…he Romans did have a personal water treatment of sorts. The popular drink "posca" was a mixture of water and vinegar and was drunk by everyone. The vinegar in this concoction would act as a water purifier by killing of any germs or bacteria in the water. (MORE)

There is a Wikipedia page on aqueducts, which may be good for a start. Alternatively one could go to the local library and inquire about books they might have on the topic.
Most of the Romans aqueducts were underground conduits. They put the conduits on bridgework when they needed to cross a valley or when they needed to keep it at a gradient to keep the water flowing.
Aqueducts brought water from the sources on the mountains to the towns. Water was channeled down the valleys by a system of siphons. Water was channelled down steep valleys with a system of inverted siphons. The water conduits led to a tank which passed the water into pipes which took it lower dow…n the valley. There they were supported by a low venter bridge which led them to another tank to discharge the water into it. This tank, in turn, fed the water into other pipes which then reached another tank, and so on. The tanks were at intervals of narrow differences in elevation in order to maintain a low gradient. A low gradient was used to prevent damage to the structure such as erosion or blow outs due to water pressure. In flat areas the conduits were placed on bridgework to maintain a gradient to keep the water flowing. Bridges were also used to cross valleys or rivers. They had arches built in stone, brick or cement (MORE)

The water of the aqueducts was clean, not dirty. Aqueducts suppliedthe towns with fresh water they carried from the sources on themountains. This water was also used for drinking.

So they would have plenty of fresh unpolluted water in majorcities. Only mountain spring water could be depended on to beunpolluted as raw sewage was dumped by cities directly into anynearby river or lake (making them stink).
