Question

Alexander, who weighs 180 lb , decides to climb Mt. Krumpett, which is 5860 m high. For his food supply, he decides to take nutrition bars. The label on the bars states that each 100-g bar contains 10 g of fat, 40 g of protein, and 50 g of carbohydrates. One gram of fat contains 9 Calories, whereas each gram of protein and carbohydrates contains 4 Calories.

Alexander wants to know exactly how many bars to pack in his backpack for the journey. To provide a margin of safety, he assumes that he will need as much energy for the return trip as for the uphill climb. How many bars should Alexander pack?

    The summer before coming to school, you are lucky enough to get a job making coffee at Starbucks,but you tell your parents and friends you have secured a lucrative position as a “java engineer”. An eccentricchemistry professor (not mentioning any names) stops in every day and order 250.0 mL of house coffee at precisely95 °C. He then adds enough milk at 10.0 °C to drop the temperature of the coffee to 90.0 °C. Calculate the amount ofmilk (in mL) the professor must add to reach this temperature. (Assume coffee and milk have the same specific heatcapacity: 4.186 J/g °C. Assume that they also have the same density: 1.000 g/mL).
    A lecture hall contains 12 rows of seats. If the professor releases laughing gas (N2O) from the front of the room and tear gas (C6H11OBr) simultaneously from the back of the room, in which row are the students apt to start and to cry simultaneously?
  • The Beirut Explosion:On August 4, 2020, an explosion rocked the Port of Beirut, Lebanon, sending a mushroom cloud high into the air and a sonic blast outward through the city. At least 200 people were killed and around 5000 were injured. The explosion created a 460-foot-wide crater and a shockwave that blew out windows as far as 5 miles from the port. It was heard as far away as Cyprus, 125 miles across the Mediterranean Sea. U.S. seismologists at the United States Geological Survey registered it as the equivalent of a 3.3–magnitude earthquake. The source was found to be a stockpile of 2750 metric tons of ammonium nitrate that was being stored in a warehouse on the port. A fire had broken out nearby shortly before the explosion. What is actually happening in one of these explosions? Pure ammonium nitrate undergoes a decomposition reaction into gaseous dinitrogen monoxide and water vapor that occurs at or above temperatures of 443 K.2 (ΔH = –36 kJ)1. Write and balance the chemical…
    1. On a cold 14.3 °C day, a basketball has deflated to a volume of 6.84 L.  To what temperature, in oC, do you need to heat up the ball to reach a volume of 7.50 L?
    A sample of chlorine gas has a volume of 0.33 LL at 273 KK and 1 atmatm pressure. What temperature (in ∘C∘C) would be required to increase the volume to 1.2 LL ? Express your answer using three significant figures.   What temperature (in ∘C∘C) would be required to decrease the volume to 0.21 LL ? Express your answer using two significant figures.
