Unformatted text preview: The mean lifetime of light-bulbs produced at a certain factory is 14,0 0 hours. The standard deviation for the lifetime distribution is 1,00 hours the key number). Assume that losers are those who purchased light-bulbs lasting less than 10,0 0 hours and winners those who purchased light-bulbs lasting longer than 18,0 0 hours. Calculate the percentage of the customers who are winners and losers. Tables will be given! Exam # 1 Problem #2: ANSWER KEYS The normalized Gaussian curve is obtained when the variable x is substituted by a variable z : - = x z After the variable transformation, the normalized Gaussian curve is a Gaussian curve for = 0 and = 1. x _ Table 1.

K A1 =1.23 10-2 and K A2 =4.66 10-7 . (a) Plot an approximate pH vs. f curve and define the f. (b) What is the majority species derived from maleic acid at f = 2.5?

Accepted approximations, maleic acid buffers (simple): Before first equivalence C4H2O4H2 = ( C4H2O4H)- + H +, K A1 ; H 2 A = AH- + H + pH = pK A1 + log[C4H2O4H2/[(C4H2O4H)-] Before second equivalence (C4H2O4H)- = (C4H2O4)2- + H+, KA2; HA- = A 2- + H + pH = pK A2 + log[(C4H2O4)2-]/[(C4H2O4H)-] Advanced: The (C4H2O4H)- , amphiprotic, may also: (C4H2O4H)- + H2O = C4H2O4H2 + OH- , K B related to K A2 ; Leads to the equation given by Hadi, (Harris: page 190, eq. 9-10).
