    Titration from basic end point to acid endpoint

    Homework Statement If you started at the basic end-point and titrated acetate solution to the acid end point, how much acid would be required? Our acetate solution was: 1 mL of 0.1 M acetic acid 1 mL of 0.1 M acetate 8 mL of water total volume: 10 mL Titration with 0.1 M HCl...

    Chemistry: Comparing the Rf values of carotene and lycopene?

    Comparing the Rf values of carotene and lycopene? Why does carotene have a higher Rf value than lycopene in TLC chromatography with a silica plate and a solvent of (3:10) dicholormethane:hexane? I know it's because carotene is less polar making it more soluble in the TLC solvent and...

    Calorimetry & Enthalpy

    Wait...if I look at the equation delta H=-CdeltaT In order for delta H to be positive wouldn't temperature change have to be negative?

    Surface area of a solid of revolution

    Yeah, I did that: I got pi as the volume of the solid and undefined (infinity) for the surface area. However its the theoretical part that i'm unsure about, where its asking if there's something wrong with the method...

    Surface area of a solid of revolution

    Homework Statement Consider now a shape that is obtained by revolving the “infinitely long” function f (x) = 1/x , 1 ≤ x < ∞ around the x-axis. Find both the surface area of the resulting object, and the enclosed volume of it, i.e. the volume of the solid obtained from revolving the...

    Relationships between first and second derivatives

    Homework Statement Figure 4.46 shows the second derivative of h(x) for -2 \leq x \leq 1 a) Explain why h'(x) is never negative on this interval. b) Explain why h(x) has a global maximum at x=1 c) Sketch a possible graph of h(x) for this interval. I realize this is probably a fairly...

    Finding unknown quadratic equations

    Oh my goodness! If I could hug you over the internet I would :P Thank you so much! I can't believe I didn't realize how simply this could be broken down...i think I was just overthinking it.

    Finding unknown quadratic equations

    Homework Statement In the attached diagram, the displacement of a follower (y) changes as the angle of the cam changes (\vartheta). The follwer has a smooth velocity over the entire path. Therefore, the velocity must match on both sides of the four points noted on the graph. If we assume...
