C111 FA 2010 Homework 1 Solution Guide and Answer Key 1. The calculation to perform: ( 29 x 3 1905 . 0 3 . 1 + = ( 29 3 178 . 0 09 . 7 simplify numerator on the left side, and cube the 0.178 term on the right side: 1.4905 = 7.09 Do not round off until the end of the calculation. 3x 0.005639752 But remember the 1.4905 only has one decimal pl. which means a datum with only 2 sig figs multiply both sides by x and by 0.005639752; divide both sides by 7.09 to isolate the “x”: (0.005639752)(1.491) = x (3)(7.09) x = 3.95339 x 10 - 4 (report 2 sig figs because limit is set by the original 1.3 term with only 2 sig figs.) = 0.00040 (standard notation) or 4.0 x 10 - 4 (scientific notation ) 2. atom g 10 x 271 . 3 atoms 10 x 022 . 6 mole 1 x mole g 967 . 196 22 23 - = moles in the denominator of first term cancel moles in the numerator of second term. Multiply by 5 atoms, to get 1.635 x 10 - 21 g. (4 sig figs) (Notice 5 is an integer number of objects and does not limit sig. figs.). 3. With only 4 sig figs in the density data, the answer may have a maximum of 4 sig figs. Assume only platinum (Pt) present in the sample, and the purity of the sample is 100%, so this density can be used.

    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.
