Sample text

A problem that I had in the laboratory some time ago was to find the internal diameter (bore) of a uniform capillary tube of circular crosssection. A piece of the tube was first weighed empty. 00 g ml 1) was drawn into the tube, the sides of which were dried. 0020g. What was the bore of the tube? Answer: The water weighed 2 mg and so its volume was 2 μl (1 g of water occupies 1 ml, which is the same as 1000 mm3 and 1000 μl). The volume of a circular column is given by: volume ¼ πr 2 l where r is the radius of the column and l is its length.

We must have at least three values of n to do this (since a straight line can always be drawn through two points). Decay of radioisotopes The rate of decay of a radioisotope cannot be altered by chemical or physical means, and is dependent only on the composition of the nucleus. The number of nuclei disintegrating in unit time will also be proportional to the number of radioactive nuclei initially present. Mathematically, the rate of decay is given by: À dn=dt ¼ kn where n is the number of radioactive nuclei, t is the time and k is the decay constant, characteristic of the particular radioisotope that is being used.

1 on deposit. Each year the amount of interest and the total value of the deposit grow. This is called compound interest. The rate of growth of your money (the interest gained in any one year) is directly proportional to the total of the amount of your initial deposit plus the already accumulated interest. 1. 05, and so on. (2) How much n increases when raised by 10% depends on the actual size of n. A 10% increase of £10 is only £1, while a 10% increase of £10 000 is £1000. 1x. 593 n. All this is familiar (I hope) but these concepts need to be very clearly understood.
