    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...

    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

    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...
