1. Quinine may be determined by measuring the fluorescence intensity in 1 M H2SO4 solution. Standard solutions of quinine gave the following fluorescence values. concentration of quinine x (g mL-1) 0.00 0.10 0.20 0.30 0.40 Fluorescence intensity y (arb. units) 0.00 5.20 9.90 15.30 19.10 a. Calculate by the least squares method the equation of the best straight line for the calibration curve. Report you result in the form y = [m(sm)]x + [b(sb)].

Equation of best line: y = [48.3(1.4)]x + 0.24(0.35) b. An unknown quinine sample gave a fluorescence intensity of 10.20. Calculate the number of quinine in g/mL in the unknown and estimate its uncertainty. (5 points) x = (y b)/m = (10.20 0.24)/48.3 = 0.2062112 = 0.21 Uncertainty in x:

2. In a Kjeldahl nitrogen analysis, nitrogen in substances such as protein, milk, cereal, and flour is determined. organic C, H, N + boiling H2SO4 NH4+ + CO2 + H2O A typical protein contains 16.2 wt% nitrogen. A 0.500-mL aliquot of protein solution was digested, and the liberated NH3 was distilled into 10.00 mL of 0.021 40 M HCl. The unreacted HCl required 3.26 mL of 0.019 8 M NaOH for complete titration. Find the concentration of protein (mg protein/mL) in the original sample. (10 points) The initial amount of HCl in the receiver was (10.00 mL) x (0.02140 mmol/mL) = 0.214 mmol. The NaOH required for titration of unreacted HCl in the above reaction was (3.26 mL)(0.0198 mmol/mL) = 0.0645 mmol. The difference , 0.214 0.0645 = 0.1495 mmol, must be equal to the quantity of NH3 produced in produced and distilled into the HCl. Because 1 mol of nitrogen in the protein produces 1 mol of NH3, there must have been 0.1495 mmol of nitrogen in the protein, corresponding to: (0.1495 mmol)(14.00674 mg N/mmol) = 2.093 mg N If the protein contains 16.2 wt% N, there must be: (2.093 mg N)/(0.162 mg N/mg protein) = 12.9 mg protein (12.9 mg protein/0.500 mL) = 25.8 mg protein/mL

3. Analysis of a sample of iron ore gave the following percentage values for the iron content: 7.08, 7.21, 7.12, 7.09, 7.16, 7.14, 7.07, 7.14, 7.18, 7.11. Calculate the a) mean, b) standard deviation and c) coefficient of variation for the values.

4. To measure the nickel content in steel, the alloy is dissolved in 12 M HCl and neutralized in the presence of citrate ion, which maintains iron in solution. The slightly basic solution is warmed, and dimethylglyoxime (DMG) is added to precipitate the red DMG-nickel complex quantitatively. The product is filtered, washed with cold water, and dried at 110 C.

If the nickel content is known to be near 3 wt % and you wish to analyze 1.0 g of the steel, what volume of 1.0 wt% alcoholic DMG solution should be used to give a 50% excess of DMG for the analysis? Assume that the density of the alcohol solution is 0.79 g/mL. (10 points) Because the Ni content is around 3%, 1.0 g of steel will contain about 0.03 g of Ni, which corresponds to: (0.03 g Ni)/(58.69 g Ni/mol Ni) = 5.1110-4 mol Ni This amount of metal requires: 2(5.1110-4 mol Ni)(116.12 g DMG/mol Ni) = 0.119 g DMG because 1 mol of Ni2+ requires 2 mol of DMG. A 50% excess of DMG would be (1.5)(0.119 g) = 0.178 g. This much DMG is contained in (0.178 g DMG)/(0.010 g DMG/g solution) = 17.8 g solution which occupies a volume of (17.8 g solution)/(0.79 g solution/mL) = 23 mL

5. Traces of toxic, man-made hexachlorohexanes in North Sea sediments were extracted by a known process and by two new procedures, and measured by chromatography. Method Conventional Method A Method B Concentration found (pg/g) 34.4 42.9 51.1 Standard deviation (pg/g) 3.6 1.2 4.6 Number of replications 6 6 6

a. Is the standard deviation for procedure B significantly different from that of the conventional procedure? (Ftable = 5.05) (3 points) Fcalculated = 4.62/3.62 = 1.63 < Ftable = 5.05. Standard deviations are not significantly different at the 95% confidence level.

b. Is the mean concentration found by procedure B significantly different from that of the conventional procedure? (ttable = 2.365) (3 points) Because Fcalculated < Ftable, we can use:
s12(n1 - 1) + s22(n2 - 1) n1 + n2 - 2

tcalculated = =

Because tcalculated > ttable (2.228 for 10 degrees of freedom), the difference is significant at the 95% confidence level.
