Problem 1 (8 points) Starting from the continuous probability distribution for one-dimensional diffusion, show how one would determine the average squared displacement in a model describing isotropic diffusion in two dimensions. The 1-dimensional continuous probability distribution is given by: P ( x , t ) dx = 1 π Dt x 2 / 4 Dt e dx For two-dimensional isotropic diffusion, with uncorrelated probabilities, we write: P ( x , y , t ) dx dy = 1 4 Dt x 2 / 4 Dt e dx Λ Ν Μ Ξ Π Ο 1 4 Dt y 2 / 4 Dt e dy Λ Ν Μ Ξ Π Ο P ( x , y , t ) dx dy = 1 4 Dt x 2 + y 2 ( ) / 4 Dt e dx dy Transforming to plane polar coordinates, r 2 = x 2 + y 2 : P ( x , y , t dx dy = 1 4 Dt r 2 ( ) / 4 Dt e dx dy P ( r , φ , t dr d = 1 4 Dt r 2 ( ) / 4 Dt e r dr d Integrating out the angular part P ( r , t ) dr = 1 4 Dt r 2 ( ) / 4 Dt e r dr d 0 2 = 1 4 Dt r 2 ( ) / 4 Dt e r dr Λ Ν Μ Ξ Π Ο d 0 2 P ( r , t ) dr = 1 2 Dt r 2 ( ) / 4 Dt e r dr The average squared displacement is: r 2 = r 2 0 P ( r , t ) dr = r 2 1 2 Dt r 2 ( ) / 4 Dt e r dr Λ Ν Μ Ξ Π Ο 0 = 1 2 Dt r 2 ( ) / 4 Dt r 3 e dr Λ Ν Μ Ξ Π Ο 0 Using Table 2.3, the integral is evaluated as: r 2 = 4 Dt CHEMISTRY 444.11 Spring, 2011 (11S) QUIZ 1 Feb. 17, 2011 NAME: Score ______/20

Problem 1 (10 points) Boundary centrifugation is performed on a solution of cytochrome c (M=13,400 gr/mol) in water at T=20° C ( ρ =0.998 gr cm 3 , η =1.002 cP) using a centrifuge operating at 40000 revolutions per minute (rpm). The following data are for the position of the boundary layer as a function of time: Time (hours) X b (cm) 0 4.00 2.5 4.11 5.2 4.23 12.3 4.57 19.1 4.91 What is the sedimentation coefficient of cytochrome c under these conditions? Show all work and give your answer in the appropriate units Solution: Plot the data as ln(x b /x b,t=0 ) versus time, t. The slope is ϖ 2 s . We fit the last 4 data points as a straight line with the parameters a and b defining the line y = at + b with a being the slope.
