Atrazine is one of the most widely used agricultural pesticides in the U.S. that may be applied before and after planting to control broadleaf and grassy weeds. It is used primarily on corn, sorghum, sugarcane, Christmas trees, and other crops.

The OSHA regulation at 29 C.F.R. §1910.1000(d) requires employers to determine the cumulative exposure of workers to certain gases over an 8-hr work shift using the following formula:
E = CaTa + CbTb + …. + CnTn
E is the equivalent exposure for the work shift,
C is the concentration during any period of time in which the concentration remains constant, and
T is the duration of time in hours of the exposure.
The regulation further stipulates that no employee can be further exposed to the gas when the value of E exceeds the 8-hr time-weighted average limit set for the given substance. If a worker is exposed to ammonia concentrations throughout the workday as follows, 125 ppm for 4 hr; 75 ppm for 2 hr; and 25 ppm for 2 hr, determine the equivalent exposure (E):
