Question 7

An analysis was run a known iron sample of 8.32% Fe.  The following results were obtained by an analyst: 8.75, 8.51, 8.25, 8.61

Which of the following statements is true assuming none of the data points are outliers?

·         Tcalc = 1.99

·         The analysis is not accurate at the 95% confidence interval.

·         Tcalc = 17.05

·         The analysis is not accurate at the 95% confidence interval.

·         Tcalc = 1.99

·         The analysis is accurate at the 95% confidence interval.

·         Not enough information is given to calculate Tcalc.

Question 8

One type of analysis was carried out n1=3 times and the second type of analysis required n2=5 repeats. Calculate the pooled degrees of freedom.

Question 9

Calculate the Spooled value for the following data measured from two different experimental methods:

Data Set 1                            Data Set 2

%                            %

·         Tcalc = 2.86

·         The 2 methods are producing statistically different results at the 95% confidence level.

Question 11

A calibration curve was plotted of Absorbance as function of Concentration of ASA in units of ppm and the best fit through the line was found to be A=0.001 x ASAconc.

A 12.13 mL aliquot of the original unknown ASA solution was diluted to a total volume of 245.1 mL.

If the diluted unknown ASA had an absorbance of 0.263, what was the concentration of the original ASA in the unknown in units of ppm? Report your answer to 2 places after the decimal point. No marks for units.

5,314.2 margin of error +/- 1%

Question 12

Calculate the equation of the best line through the following data set:

X             y

0.00        2.92

2.00        3.44

4.00        5.44

6.00        7.34
