A sample of 150 mg of an organic compound is dissolved in 7.5 mL of water. The solution is placed in a 20-cm polarimeter tube and the rotation measured in a polarimeter. The rotation observed was +2.676 degrees. Distilled water, in the same tube, gave a reading of +0.016 degrees. Calculate the specific rotation for the compound.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com May 24, 2023, 1:34 pm ad1c9bdddf
