ChE 102 Chemistry for Engineers - Tutorial 1 Solve the following problems either individually or in small groups (3 students maximum). Submit one copy of the solutions per group. Ask the TA for help if you need assistance solving the problems. Problem 1 Things have been financially difficult for you this term and you are faced with cashing the inheritance left to you by your grandfather a California gold nugget weighing 12.3 grains. You decide you will convert the gold nugget to Tim Horton Timbits ® and at least you won’t starve. You do a Google search and find that the price of gold is currently \$1308 USD/troy ounce. The current exchange rate is 1 USD = 1.31 CAD. You also find out from GoldFeverProspecting.com that 31.1 grams = 1 troy ounce and that 1 gram = 15.43 grains. Timbits ® can be purchased in a 10 pack for 2.56 CAD or in a 20 pack for 4.51 CAD (prices include tax). How many Timbits ® can you get by cashing in your inheritance?
