Unformatted text preview: -1-22 April, 2007Michael F. BrownCHEMISTRY 481 (Biophysical Chemistry)Problem Set 11To be turned in by: Monday, 30 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 15Back of Chapter Problems related to the homework (optional): 15.3, 15.5, 15.8, 15.11, 15.30Problem 1.A biophysical chemist is interested in the use of 23Na NMR spectroscopyas aprobe of cellular metabolism. The (Zeeman) Hamiltonian for coupling of the nuclear spin to themagnetic field B: H =hB I Zwhere I zI,mI=mII,mINote that the 23Na nucleus has a spin of I= 3/2....
