Two components in an HPLC separation have retention times that differ by 10.0 s. The first peak elutes in 8.10 min and the peak widths are approximately equal. The dead time tm is 72.0 s. Find the minimum number of theoretical plates to achieve the following resolution values: 0.50, 0.75, 0.90, 1.0, 1.1, 1.25, 1.50, 1.75, 2.00 and 2.50. Hint: build a spreadsheet for the calculations.
