1.57. Set Up:
Estimate 2 ft per step and 100 steps per minute. Use:
Solve: (a)
The distance is
The number of steps is calculated as this dis
tance divided by the distance per step:
(b)
The time in minutes is the number of steps required divided by the number of steps per minute
At 8 h per day it takes about 120 days.
1.58. Set Up:
Assume you walk 1 mile each way.
Solve: (a)
In 15 years, there are 780 weeks. If 45 weeks are vacation, you walk 735 weeks which represents 3675

Calculate the volume of liquid in liters using
Use the result to calculate
the mass of arsenic using the given arsenic per liter quantity
and the unit conversion
Solve:
You drink
or
The mass of arsenic received
per day is
Reflect:
While this is a very small amount of arsenic, concern about the accumulation in the body over a long period
