BrownCHEMISTRY 481 (Biophysical Chemistry)Problem Set 10To be turned in by: Monday, 23 AprilWorked examplesfor this course are dealt with primarily in the Discussion Section; whereas newconceptsare introduced in the Lectures. You can get help with the homework problems in theDiscussion Sections (12:30-13:20 Tuesday, Koffler 216; and 13:00-13:50 Wednesday, Koffler216). The problem sets will be graded P+, P, or F and will be used to increase or decreaseborderline grades. On all computational problems be sure to use SI units, and indicate youranswer to the proper number of significant figures. For maximum credit show clearly how youobtained your answer, i.e.what numbers were combined to yield the final result.Background reading: Silbey, Chapter 11.111.3, 11.7Back of Chapter Problems related to the homework (optional): 11.10, 11.11,11.13, 11.27, 11.17Problem 1.A fluorescent probe that is very popular in studies of biological membranes is 1,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-hexatriene (abbreviated DPH), whose structure is indicated below:Let us consider the application of Hckel molecular orbital theory...
