CHEM 0110 QUIZ 1 WEEK 2 TUESDAY 8:00 AM Golde September 7, 2010 NAME_______________________________________________________________________ 1. Evaluate the following expression: 319 + -4 -7 4.72 x 10 5.57 x 10 Give your answer to the appropriate number of sig. figs. State the number of sig. figs. and explain how you decided how many sig. figs. to use. 2. In a fast tennis serve, the ball travels at a speed of 125 mph. How long would the ball take to travel a distance of 25 meters (about 80 feet) at this constant speed? Show your work. Does your answer make sense? Give your reasoning. 1 mile = 1.609km ANSWERS 1. The division yields 847.4056, which should be rounded to 3 sig figs, 847, because each number has 3 sig. figs. Then: 847 + 319 = 1166. In the summation, all the digits before the decimal point are significant. So the answer has 4 sig. figs. 2. (Any valid approach is acceptable). Let's convert 125 mile/hr to m/s. Speed = 1km 1000m x mile 1 1.609km x 3600s hr 1 x hr 1 mile 125 = 55.87 m/s Time = 55.87m/s 25m = 0.45 s A time of about one-half second seems reasonable for a fast serve.

CHEM 0110 QUIZ 1 WEEK 2 TUESDAY, 1:00 PM Golde September 7, 2010 NAME_______________________________________________________________________ 1. Evaluate the following expressions: a) 2.37 x 10 -6 + 4.5 x 10 -7 b) 7 - 6 - -8 10 x 4.5 10 x 2.37 10 x 52 . 6 + Give your answers to the appropriate number of sig. figs. State the number of sig. figs. used and explain how you decided how many sig. figs. to use. The answer to a) does NOT have 2 sig. figs. 2. We know that the energy content of carbohydrates and proteins is 4.0 Cal/g, and of fats is 9.0 Cal/g. In a certain food, 25% of the calories come from fat and the rest from carbohydrate and protein. If a serving contains 7.0g of fat, how many grams of carbohydrate + protein does this serving contain? Show your work clearly. ANSWERS 1. a) One way is to write each number with the same exponential term: 2.37 x 10 -6 + 0.45 x 10 -6 = 2.82 x 10 -6 As each number (written as x 10 -6 ) has 2 decimal places, the answer will also. This gives 3 sig. figs. for the answer. b) Using the result from (a), the division yields 2.31 x 10 -2 , which has 3 sig. figs., the same as the numerator and denominator. 2. [Accept any valid approach]. For instance: We know that fat accounts for 25% and carbohydrate + protein accounts for 75% of the calories in this food. # of fat calories in one serving = 7.0g x 9.0 Cal 1g = 63 Cal Therefore # of calories from carbohydrate + protein = 63 Cal x 75% 25% = 189 Cal Therefore mass = 189 Cal x 1g 4.0 Cal = 47g (to 2 sig. figs) For Make-up Only Regular recitation Day: Time: instructor: Quiz Score: Group score: Scores recorded by:

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
