Put answers on this sheet, but turn in legible written work on separate paper.
1. Dr. Banner is given the graph below for the UV analysis (280 nm) of a solution developed to reverse damage caused
by radiation. Use the graph to determine the concentrations of solutions X and Y.
a. Solution X was analyzed to have A = 0.285.
b. Solution Y is too concentrated for analysis, so 10.00 mL of Y is pipetted into a volumetric flask and diluted with
water to 25.00 mL. This diluted solution has A = 0.673. Find [Y] original.

7. The standard molar enthalpy change for the combustion of ammonia is –905.2 kJ. Calculate the standard molar
enthalpy of formation for NH3, given the following equation and 
Hºf values.
