Unformatted text preview: 1 (a) What is the base peak in spectrum A (5 points) ? (b) Match each spectrum with the correct molecule. Assign at least 2 of the fragments (not including the parent ion peak) for each molecule (20 points). 5. Two of the major peaks in the mass spectrum of butanone occur at m/e values of 29 and 43. Indentify the ions (10 points). O CH 2 CH 3 H 3 C butanone 6. The atomic masses of some elements are shown. Element Relative atomic mass Hydrogen 1 H 1.0078 Carbon 12 C 12.0000 Nitrogen 14 N 14.0031 Oxygen 16 O 15.9949 2 (a) Using the data above, explain why nitrogen monoxide (NO) and ethane (C 2 H 6 ) can be distinguished with high resolution mass spectrometry (5 points). (b) High-resolution mass spectrometers are included on planetary space probes. Such a probe recorded gases with masses of 27.0109 and 31.0421. Identify these two gases, each containing elements from the group shown on the above Table (10 points). 3...
