    1.The hormone insulin contains 3.4% sulfur. What is the minimum molecular weight of insulin?

    The actual molecular weight is 5734; how many sulfur atoms are probably present per molecule? (Please explain reasoning clearly).

    2. The specific [alpha] of (-)-morphine is -132 degrees. What will the be the observed rotation when using a solution whose concentration is 10.0g per 255 ml and polarimeter sample cell of 20.0 cm long?
