ok thank you and for the specific rotation of L-erythrose 4-phosphate would it be the same as for D-erythrose 4-phosphate which I determined was 50 or would it be -50?
*October 28, 2012*

**Chemistry(Please help)**

The path of length was given in cm so I converted it to dm but I am not sure if I calculated the concentration correctly. A 50 gram sample was dissolved in 10 mL solution so would I do 50/10?
*October 28, 2012*

**Chemistry(Please help)**

Oh ok, the question asks me to find the specific rotation for D-erythrose 4-phosphate which I determined was 50 and then it asks me to find the specific optical rotation for L-erythrose 4-phosphate so I thought that it would be a different formula.

I know that to calculate the specific rotation for a compound you do observed rotation / path length(dm) * conc. (g/ml). I am confused about how to calculate the specific optical rotation for a compound. Thank you for your help!
