1) Short answer questions – no explanations needed. a) Which is more precise – a volumetric pipet or a measuring pipet? (5 points) b) In experiment 2A, the CBBG-BSA complex is allowed to stand at 10 minutes prior to the absorption measurement. Will the absorbance at 595 nm taken at 2.5 minutes be lower, the same, or higher than at 10 minutes? (5 points) 2) For the deprotonation of water by the weak base B , derive an expression analogous to the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation that relates the pOH of a solution to the K b value. Clearly circle your final equation. (10 points)
