adding:
is it possible that bsa has multiple types of binding sites (we calculated 5 total sites for ANS) that are specific to the fatty acid, giving us the two different curve profiles of caproic acid and lauric acid?
Homework Statement
The background: We performed an experiment testing the fatty acid binding difference of caproic (hexanoic) acid and lauric (dodecanoic) acid to bovine serum albumin. The experiment was performed using a fluorescent marking called ANS(which fluoresces when bound to bovine...
Homework Statement
find the integral of (cscx)2 between pie/6 to pie/2
The Attempt at a Solution
cot2x = 1 / sin2x * cos2x / cos2x
which becomes..
tan2x * sec2x
then i substituted u for tan x, and turned the integral into..
u2du = u3 / 3
which is..
tan3x / 3 between pie/6 and...

Describe the preparation of 40 L of 0.0500M phosphate buffer, pH 6.9 starting with 1M solutions of KH2PO4 and K2HPO4. pKa= 7.2
Homework Equations
pH= pKa + log[A-]/[HA]
[b]3. The Attempt at a Solution [/b
6.9=7.2 + log[A-]/[HA]
-0.3= log[A-]/[HA]
[A-]/[HA]= 0.50...
So heres the background, I am currently doing research on one of the luciferase proteins. The luciferase protein creates bioluminescence using the substrates ATP and Luciferan. Its a two step process... but the general sense is that u can use the light to measure the activity of the protein as...
aahhhh, lol. Ok, so how do i know that the tangent line is simply x = 1?
edit: oh wait, i think i got it. So i realize the slope is divided by 0, which means that the limit approaches infinity, and the slope is undefined, what i don't get is how u make the next connection and say that the...
so as the derivative goes to that point, it goes to infinity, telling us that the function must also be growing infinitly.
But bottom line, the tangent line does not exist at (1,1), right? b/c there is no derivative at the point (1,1), there is just a limit

What is the derivative of x^2 + y^2 = 2y, and find the tangent line to this equation at (1,1)
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
I get y' = x / (1-y). However, how do I find the tangent line to this? When I plug in the values it divides by zero! (1 /...
Homework Statement
I have to find the min and max of this function using derivatives:
(e^(-x)) - (e^(-2x))
The Attempt at a Solution
f'(x) = -e^(-x) + 2x(e^(-2x))
So now i set that to zero, and I get...
2x(e^(-2x)) = e^(-x)
And at this point I have no idea what to do. If...
I had a question about how the RNA processing occurs. I know that the RNA is transcribed off the DNA, and then the introns are removed(sometimes in different orders), and then the capping occurs. My question is whether or not different segments of RNA can fuse together before during the...
yea, thats it, we used DPIP as an electron acceptor, i didn't even think about it, but it does change from blue to clear as it is reduced...can't believe i missed that, thanks for your help
