Please answer these questions correctly so you can get 5 job offers and still go to the party with your friends by 9 pm. A table of formula weights is after the last question. a. Make 225 mL of a solution that is 2.5 M NaCl, 0.1 M Tris-HCl, pH 7.5, 100 mM EDTA. 32.9 g NaCl + 2.72 g Tris + 9.36 g EDTA; obtain about 170 mL water, add dry stuff, dissolve, pH with HCl to 7.5 and bring volume up to 225 mL b. Make 50 mL of a 0.5X TBE, 1 X EtBr , and 0.8% w/v agarose when you have 5 L of 10X TBE and 100 mL of a 1000X EtBr stock solutions....
