Molarity of Bromophenol Blue Stock

You have 20 ml of 10% Bromophenol Blue (BPB). Using a 10% stock, how would you prepare 5 ml of a 0.2 % stock? (MW BPB is 670) Assume 1 % = 1 g/100ml. In addition, what is the molarity of the 0.2% BPB Stock?

pH and Temperature

The dissociation of water increases as the temperature is raised: H20 --> H+ + OH-. If you adjust a buffer to pH 7.4 at room temperature (25 degree Celsius), then cool it down to 4 degree Celsius for an enzyme assay, will the pH increase or decrease?

Buffer HEPES and MES got mixed. Identify which beaker contains HEPES.

You and a lab parnter prepare buffers to use in an experiment. Your partner prepares 200 ml 50 mM MES pH 6.0 while you prepare 200 ml of 50 mM HEPES pH 6.0. (MES and HEPES are the abbreviated names for two biological buffers often used in research labs). HEPES has MW 238.3 and pK = 7.48 MES has MW 195 and pK = 6.1 1. How

Calculating Delta S for reaction

1. At two different temperatures, the reaction A & B is allowed to reach equilibrium and Delta H is measure. Delta H =10.9 kJ/mol for this reaction at 5.5 C and Delta H=31.0 kJ/mol at 80.1 C. Calculate Delta S for this reaction at each of these two temperatures. (Hint Delta G = 0 at equilibrium).

Predicting Reactions and Calculating Quantity

Predict whether the following reaction would proceed spontaneously as written at 298 K by calculating both Delta G and e for the reaction, given that [Co2+] =.15 M and [Fe2+]= 0.68 M.
