Abstract

Risk assessment studies have been used for environmental research for decades. They are used to model the transport behavior of chemicals and other heavy metals in the environment. However, in order to predetermine the nature of motion of metals in surface water, it is essential to determine the physio-chemical properties of these metals. As a result, using the partitioning co-efficient one can generate regression to generate the nature of the flow of metals in water and their environmental effects.
