6.

The growth of a bacterial colony can be modeled as a first-order process in which the

probability of cell division is linear with respect to time such that dN dt , where dN is

the number of cells that divide in the time interval dt, and is a constant.

a) Use the preceding expression to show that the number of cells in the colony is given by

t

N N 0 e , where N is the number of cell colonies and N0 is the number of colonies

present at t = 0.

b) The generation time is the amount of time it takes for the number of cells to double.

Using the answer to part (a), derive an expression for the generation time.

c) In milk at 37C, the bacteria lactobacillus acidophilus has a generation time of about 75

min. Construct a plot of the acidophilus concentration as a function of time for time

intervals of 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes after a colony of size N0 is

introduced to a container of milk.

7.

You are performing an experiment using 3H (half-life = 4.5 103 days) labeled

phenylalanine in which the five aromatic hydrogens are labeled. To perform the experiment,

the initial activity cannot be lower than 10% of the initial activity when the sample was

received. How long after receiving the sample can you wait before performing the

experiment?

For the reaction A- (aq) + H+ (aq) P, the rate constant has been found to be kr = 7.78 x

1014 L/(mol s) x e-9134/T. Calculate the thermodynamic parameters of activation at 30C.

9.

For the decomposition of acetaldehyde in the gas phase at 791 K, at an initial concentration

of 9.72 x 10-3 M, the half-life of the reaction is 328 seconds; when the concentration of

acetaldehyde is halved, the half-life increases by a factor of two.

a) What is the order of the decomposition of acetaldehyde?

b) Calculate the rate constant for the reaction.

activation. The fact that the S is positive, means that the activated complex (transition

state) is associated with bond breaking and an increase in disorder. The H indicates

that the amount of energy that has been input into the bonds is quite a bit smaller than

either that of an N=N bond (~ 420 kJ mol -1) or an N-N bond (~ 160 kJ mol -1). This

indicates that the transition state contains some single-bond character!! A simple picture

may be as follows.

Of course, this makes sense with respect to the fact that in order to rotate around the double

bond (i.e., to get from cis- to trans-) some lengthening of the bond must occur and there has

to be a rotation of the methyl groups about the double bond. Rotation will only occur with

significant bond lengthening or creation of single-bond character, hence, weakening the

bond.

5.

Since this is a branching reaction, we define kCa as the rate constant for the Ca production,

and kAr as the rate constant for Ar production. Finally, the total 1st order rate constant for K

decay is equal to the sum of kCa and kAr so that:

Ca kCa

k kCa k Ar and

Ar k Ar

Using the definition of the half-life, k is determined as follows:
