Judging from these two equations, the mole ratio of oxygen to sewage is (1/4)/(1/50) = (25/2). Oxygen is the same as the ultimate carbonaceous biochemical oxygen demand, CBOD. Let fBOD be the mole ratio of BOD5 to CBOD, which would be the same as the mole ratio of BOD5 to oxygen. The mole ratio of BOD5 to sewage is then f BOD (25/2).
