CONCEPTUAL EXAMPLE 1.1

Risk–Benefit Analysis

Solution

The heroin would provide the benefit of pain relief, but its use for such purposes has been judged to be too risky by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The DQ is low.

The heroin would provide the benefit of pain relief. The risk of addiction in a dying person is irrelevant. Heroin is used this way in Great Britain, but it is banned for any purpose in the United States. The DQ is uncertain. (Both answers involve judgments that are not clearly scientific; people can differ in their assessments of each.)

Exercise 1.1A

Exercise 1.1B

Chloramphenicol is a powerful antibacterial drug that often destroys bacteria unaffected by other drugs. It is highly dangerous to some individuals, however, causing fatal aplastic anemia in about 1 in 30,000 people. Do a risk–benefit analysis for the use of chloramphenicol in (a) sick farm animals, from which people might consume milk or meat with residues of the drug, and (b) a person with Rocky Mountain spotted fever faced with a high probability of death or permanent disability.

A four-year clinical trial (6800 participants) of the drug tamoxifen in healthy women at high risk showed a 49% lower rate of breast cancer than a group of 6800 women taking a placebo. Tamoxifen has a low rate of serious side effects, including potentially fatal blood clots, uterine cancer, hot flashes, loss of libido, and cataracts. Do a risk–benefit analysis for the use of tamoxifen in (a) all women and (b) women at high risk.

Some medical doctors think heroin is more effective for the relief of severe pain than other medicines. However, heroin is highly addictive and often renders the user unable to function in society. Do a risk–benefit analysis for the use of heroin in treating the pain of (a) a young athlete’s broken leg and (b) a terminally ill cancer patient.

Risk–Benefit Analysis continued

Exercise 1.1C

Rotavirus is the most common cause of severe diarrhea among children. This virus causes hospitalization of approximately 55,000 children each year in the United States and the death of over 600,000 children annually worldwide. A vaccine can prevent most cases. There is a strong association between the vaccine and bowel obstruction in some infants. Do a risk–benefit analysis for the use of the vaccine in (a) the United States and (b) worldwide.

CONCEPTUAL EXAMPLE 1.2

Mass and Weight

Solution

The person’s mass would be the same (62.5 kg) as on Earth; the quantity of matter has not changed.

The person would weigh only 0.376 x 124 lb = 46.6 lb; the force of attraction between planet and person is only 0.376 times that on Earth.

Exercise 1.2A

Exercise 1.2B

At the surface of Venus, the force of gravity is 0.903 times that on Earth’s surface. (a) What would be the mass of a standard 1.00-kg object on Venus? (b) A man who weighs 198 lb on Earth would weigh how much on the surface of Venus?

On Jupiter, at the boundary between the gaseous atmosphere and the liquid that makes up the bulk of the planet, the force of gravity is 2.34 times that on Earth. (a) What would be the mass of a 52.5-kg woman at that location on Jupiter? (b) A man who weighs 212 lb on Earth would weigh how much on Jupiter?

On the planet Mercury gravity is 0.376 times that on Earth. (a) What would be the mass on Mercury of a person who has a mass of 62.5 kilograms (kg) on Earth? (b) What would be the weight on Mercury of a person who weighs 124 pounds (lb) on Earth?

CONCEPTUAL EXAMPLE 1.3

Chemical Change and Physical Change

Solution

We examine each change and determine whether there has been a change in composition or structure. In other words, we ask “Have new substances that are chemically different been created?” If so, the change is chemical; if not, it is physical.

Physical change: The composition of the hair is not changed by cutting.

Chemical change: The compositions of curds and whey are different from the composition of the milk.

Physical change: Liquid water and invisible water vapor formed when liquid water boils have the same composition; the water merely changes from a liquid to a gas.

Chemical change: New substances, hydrogen and oxygen, are formed.

Exercise 1.3A

Which of the following events involve chemical changes and which involve physical changes?

Gasoline vaporizes from an open container.

A piece of magnesium metal burns in air to form a white powder called magnesium oxide.

EXAMPLE 1.5

Prefixes and Powers of Ten

Solution

Our goal is to replace each power of ten with the appropriate prefix from Table 1.5. For example, 10–3 = 0.001,

corresponding to milli(unit). (It doesn’t matter what the unit is; here we are dealing only with the prefixes.)

10–3 corresponds to the prefix milli-; 2.89 mg; that is, 10–3x 9 (unit) = milli(unit).

103 corresponds to the prefix kilo-; 4.30 km; that is, 103x (unit) = kilo(unit).

Exercise 1.5

Convert each of the following measurements to a unit that replaces the power of ten by a prefix.

7.24 x 103 gb. 4.29 x 10–6 mc. 7.91 x 10-3 s

d. 2.29 x 10–2 ge. 7.90 x 106 m

Convert each of the following measurements to a unit that replaces the power of ten by a prefix.

a. 2.89 x 10–3 gb. 4.30 x 103 m

Solution

- Our goal is to find the power of ten that relates the given unit to the SI base
unit. That is, centi(base unit) = 10-2x (base unit)

- 4.12 centimeter = 4.12 x 10-2 m
- b. To change microsecond to the base unit second, we replace the prefix micro- by 10-6.
- To obtain an answer in the conventional exponential form, we also need to replace the coefficient
- 947 by 9.47 x 102. The result of these two changes is
- 947 ms = 947 x 10-6 s = 9.47 x 102x 10-6 s = 9.47 x 10-4 s
- To change nanometer to the base unit meter, we replace the prefix nano- by 10–9. The answer in
exponential form is 3.17 x 10-9 m.

Math, Length, Area, Volume

Solution

In customary units, a two-year-old child should weigh about 20–25 lb. Knowing that 1 kg is about 2.2 lb, the only reasonable answer is 10 kg.

In customary units, a two-year-old child should be about 30–36 in. tall. Knowing that 1 cm is a little less than 0.5 in., the answer must be a little more than twice 30–36, or a bit more than 70–72 cm. Thus the only reasonable answer 85 cm.

(Appendix A) that allows us to cancel the unit kg and end with the unit g.

b.Here we start with the given quantity 729 mL and use the equivalences 106mL = 1 L and 103 mL = 1 L to form conversion factors that allows us to cancel the unit mL and end with the unit mL.

Mass, Volume, and Density

Solution

From Table 1.6 we see that the density of gold (19.3 g/cm3) is greater than that of copper (8.94 g/cm3). It takes a larger block of copper to have a mass of 50.00 g than of gold. A 50.0-g block of copper has a greater volume than a 50.0-g block of gold.

From Table 1.6 we see that the density of ethyl alcohol (0.789 g/mL) is greater than that of hexane (0.660 g/mL). Because it is more dense (that is, it has more mass in each unit of volume), 225 mL of ethyl alcohol has a greater mass than does 225 mL of hexane.

Exercise 1.9A

Exercise 1.9B

Without doing a detailed calculation, determine which has the greater volume, a 500.0-g block of ice or a 500.0-g block of magnesium.

Answer the following without doing a detailed calculation. (a) Which has the greater volume, a 50.0-g block of copper or a 50.0-g block of gold? (b) Which has the greater mass, 225 mL of ethyl alcohol or 225 mL

of hexane?
