Active oxygen and free radicals are believed to be exacerbating factors in causing cell injury and aging in living tissue . Researchers are therefore interested in understanding the protective role of natural antioxidants. In the study of one such antioxidant (Hsian-tsao leaf gum), the antioxidation activity of the substance has been found to depend on concentration in the following way:

dA(c)\dc=k[L−A(c)], A(0)=0.dA(c)dc=k[L−A(c)], A(0)=0.

In this equation, the dependent variable AA is a quantitative measure of antioxidant activity at concentration cc. The constant LL represents a limiting or equilibrium value of this activity, and kk a positive rate constant.

- Let B(c)=A(c)−L and reformulate the given initial value problem in terms of this new dependent variable, B.

dB(c)/dc=

B(0)= - Solve the new initial value problem for B(c)and then determine the quantity A(c).

A(c)=

Does the activity A(c) ever exceed the value L? ? yes no - Determine the concentration at which 95% of the limiting antioxidation activity is achieved. (Your answer is a function of the rate constant kk.)

c=

Step 1

Consider the given questions,

**(1)**

Step 2

**(2)**

Now, solve the new initial value problem for *B*(*c*) and then find the quantity *A*(*c*).

Step 3

Further simplify the above equation,
