Unformatted text preview: you that the lowest amount of benzene that the GC/MS can detect is 0.03 micrograms. In addition, she tells you that the tube runs the risk of being "overloaded" if it has more than 5 micrograms on it. You are running a study to look at the concentrations in homes. The literature tells you that typical home concentrations range between 1 and 50 ug/mA3. You would like to collect the sample for 24 hours. What would be a good flow rate to select to ensure that you have enough mass on the tube to detect the benzene, but not so much as to overload the tube?...
