Analysing physico-chemical parameters of water

Taruna Jyoti, Pratik Kumar

Water is the most essential substance in shaping the land and regulating the climate. It is one of the most important compounds which influence life. The life is globally threatened due to undesired changes in physical, chemical and biological characteristics of water, air and soil. Water is highly polluted due to growth of population, industrialization, use of fertilizers and man-made activities. Natural water is polluted because of weathering of rocks, leaching of soils and mining processing etc. The quality of drinking water should be tested regularly at certain intervals in order to prevent water born diseases and to maintain quality of life. To test the quality of water, it is necessary to know different physico-chemical parameters such as color, temperature, hardness, chloride, pH, DO, BOD, COD, alkalinity used for testing water quality. Heavy metals also affect the quality of water by chronic poisoning in aquatic animals. Reports of some water analysis with physico-chemical parameters are given to explore parameter study. Water Quality parameters are also compared the value of real water sample.
