A 2.67 g sample of plant tissue was analyzed for its zinc content. 23.25 ml of a standardized 0.010 Molar solution of EDTA was used to titrate the sample (by complexing with the zinc ions), determine the mass of zinc in the sample and express the value as;

a. ppm zinc?

b. ppb zinc?

c. What mass of zinc product would form if the zinc (2+) ions were instead allowed to precipitate as zinc phosphate?

3Zn2+(aq) + 2PO43-(aq)Zn3(PO4)2(s)

Solutions

Expert Solution

The mass of zinc present is calculated:

m Zn = M * V * MM = 0.01 M * 0.02325 L * 65.38 g / mol = 0.015 g

a) The ppm is calculated:

ppm = mg / Kg = 0.015 g Zn / 2.67 g * (1000 mg / 1 g) * (1000 g / 1 Kg) = 5618 ppm

b) The ppb is calculated:

ppb = ppm * 1000 = 5618 * 1000 = 5618000

c) The mass of Zn3 (PO4) 2 formed is calculated:

m Zn3 (PO4) 2 = 0.015 g Zn * (1 mol / 65.38 g) * (1 mol Zn3 (PO4) 2/3 mol Zn) * (386.1 g Zn3 (PO4) 2/1 mol) = 0.030 g

A 0.608 g sample of fertilizer contained nitrogen as ammonium sulfate. It was analyzed for nitrogen by heating with sodium hydroxide. The ammonium was collected in 46.3 mL of 0.213 M HCL with which it reacted. The solution was titrated with excess HCL requiring 44.3 Ml of 0.128 M NaOH. What is the percentage of nitrogen in the fertilizer?

Choose any one plant tissue. Compare and contrast that tissue to animal epithelial tissue. The answer should include the makeup of each, considering structure, function, and interactions (or lack of interactions) between cells; it should also address how different organisms can build different tissue to address similar issues, so choose the tissue carefully.

A 0.400 g sample of toothpaste was boiled with a 25 ml solution TISAB buffer to extract the fluoride. After cooling, the solution was diluted to exactly 100.0ml with more TISAB solution. The potential of fluoride ion-selective electrode/reference electrode in an aliquot of the sample was measured to be 186.6 mV. This value corresponding to a log[F-] of -3.5016 on a working curve of mV versus log [F-]. Calculate the weight percent F- and NaF in the toothpaste sample.
