Key for Micro Exam 1 Question 4 JDL edit Question 4: (Do this type of problem on paper without a calculator. Take it step by step using dimensional analysis. Make appropriate approximations where necessary to choose the logical answer from the choices below.) How many neutrons are found in a 5.0 pmol sample of 90 Zr? Answers: A) 1.5 x 10 14 B) 1.5 x 10 17 C) 1.5 x 10 20 D) 3.4 x 10 20 E) 3.0 x 10 16 F) 3.409 x 10 17 G) none of these Dimensional analysis is a method for converting units. This requires a process of step-by-step conversions to reach an overall conversion. Here, the question essentially asks you to convert pmol of 90 Zr to numbers of neutrons. A model for the conversion is illustrated below. Notice how the units are consistently aligned diagonal to each other so that they cancel each other out until the final conversion to neutrons is reached. 5.0 pmol 90 Zr | 1 mol 90 Zr | 6 x 10 23 atoms 90 Zr | 50 neutrons | 10 12 pmol 90 Zr | 1 mol 90 Zr | 1 atom 90 Zr To set this up, first convert pmol to mol. Remember that there are 10 12 pmol in 1 mol. Next use

    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.

    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.
