The shown chromatogram was recorded on a column of 30 m length and 0.32 mm internal diameter with a carrier gas flow rate of 2 mL/min. Determine the dead time of this column.

I keep getting a dead time that is really really small but I know it should be around 5 minutes...any hints to figure this out?
