Answer to Question #54631 in General Chemistry for Jessica1
(There is a reason to suppose that LD50 in rats would be different from LD50 in human, due to distinction in metabolism. In this virtual experiment we would ignore the differences and presume that LD50 [R] = LD50 [H].)
LD50 (Rats) = LD50 (Humans) = 1.63 g/kg;
1 tablet contain 0.325 g of aspirin. m(Human) = 62.1 kg;
m(t) = 0.325 g;
m(H) = 62.1 kg;
N - ?
N = m(H)*LD50/m(t);
N = 62.1*1.63/0.325;
N = 311.46 = 312
Answer: 312 tablets
