Question #1
For a 170lb person, calculate the quanities of each of the following that must be ingested to provide the LD50 for caffine given if caffine is equal to 192 LD50(mg/kg).

1)Cups of coffee if one cup is 12 fluid ounces and there is 100mg of caffine per 6 fl oz of dripped brewed coffee.

2)Cans of cola if one can contains 50mg of caffine

3) Tablets of No-Doz if one tablet contains 100mg of caffine

Question #2

  1. For 1-1.
    step 1.Convert 170 lb to kg = ?? kg.
    step 2. 192 mg/kg x ?? kg = mg caffeine for the 170# person to reach the LD50.
    step 3. Convert mg caffeine to cups coffee knowing that 1 cup coffee contains 200 mg caffeine.

    2-3 are done the same way with only step 3 being different.

    Check my thinking.

  2. Problem 2.
    This is just a problem in conversions.
    step 1. convert 0.45 lb to ?? kg.

    step 2. convert ??kg to pesos at 46 pesos/kg = yy pesos

    step 3. now convert yy pesos to cents knowing that 11 pesos = 100 cents

    Check my thinking. Check my numbers. Post your work if you get stuck.
