1. (15 pts.) A 3.00 L sample of urban air was bubbled through a solution containing 50.0mL of 0.0116 M Ba(OH)2 which caused the CO2 in the sample to precipitate asBaCO3. The excess base was back-titrated to a phenolphthalein endpoint with 23.6mL of 0.0108 M HCl.

Your first assignment at El Smello Perfume Co. is to determine the propersetting for filling the bottles. The company wishes to keep profits high by using aslittle perfume as possible but a government regulation states that no more than 2.5%of the bottles may contain less than the stated volume on the bottle. If the bottles youare filling are stated to contain 100 mL what is the minimum volume you should usefor filling if the standard deviation in the fill level is 1.6 mL.

(20 pts) Isotope dilution is a mass spectrometric technique in which a known amountof an unusual isotope (called the spike) is added to an unknown as an internalstandard for quantitative analysis. The ratio of the isotopes is measured and from thisratio the quantity of the element in the original unknown can be calculated. Forexample natural vanadium atom fractions 51V = 0.9975 and 50V = 0.0025. Theatomic fraction is defined as:atom fraction of 51V = atoms 51V/(atoms 51V atoms 50V)A spike enriched in 50V has atom fractions 51V = 0.6391 and 50V = 0.3609.a) Let A be 51V and B be 50V. Let Ax be the atom fraction of A in an unknown.Let Bx be the atom fraction of B in the unknown. Let As and Bs be thecorresponding atom fractions in a spike. Let Cx be the total concentration ofall isotopes of vanadium ( mol/g) in the unknown and let Cs be theconcentration in the spike.

The sulfur in a 5.00 g sample of steel was evolved as H2S and then collectedin a solution of CdCl2 to produce the precipitate CdS. The CdS was then titrated withexcess I2 and the remaining I2 was then back titrated with 4.82 ml of 0.0510 Msodium thiosulfate. If the concentration of the I2 is 0.0600 M and a total of 10.0 ml isadded calculate the %S in the steel.
