Homework #2: 4 problems Due Wednesday, April 9 th , 4:00PM You must show your work, inclusive of calculations, for full credit. ( Caution: We have found on occasion, that answers in the back of the book are sometimes incorrect.) 1. Calculate the number of molecules in a 1-Liter gas canister used for GC analysis: a. Prior to obtaining the gas sample, the pressure inside the canister is 10 -4 Torr b. After opening the valve, assuming 1.0 atm outside pressure. 2. Gas Chromatography problems from Ch. 26 -27 a. How does gas-liquid and gas-solid chromatography differ? b. What is meant by temperature programming in GC? Why is it used? c. Define retention volume versus corrected and specific retention volume. d. What is the difference between a concentration-sensitive and a mass- sensitive detector? e. Describe the principles of operation for the detectors: 1. thermal conductivity, 2. atomic emission, 3. thermionic, 4. electron capture, 5.
