Suppose you take a dose of m mg of a particular medication once per day. Assume f equals the fraction of the medication that remains in your blood one day later. Just after taking another dose of medication on the second day, the amount of medication in your blood equals the sum of the second dose and the fraction of the first dose remaining in your blood, which is m+mf. Continuing in this fashion, the amount of medication in your blood just after your nth does is \(\displaystyle{A}_{{{n}}}={m}+{m}{f}+\ldots+{m}{f}^{{{n}-{1}}}\). For the given values off and m, calculate \(\displaystyle{A}_{{{5}}},{A}_{{{10}}},{A}_{{{30}}}\), and \(\displaystyle\lim_{{{n}\rightarrow\infty}}{A}_{{{n}}}\). Interpret the meaning of the limit \(\displaystyle\lim_{{{n}\rightarrow\infty}}{A}_{{{n}}}\). \(f=0.25,\) \(m=200mg.\)

\(\displaystyle{A}_{{{5}}}={266.4},\)

\({A}_{{{10}}}={266.66},\)

\({A}_{{{30}}}={266.67},\)

\(\lim_{{{n}\rightarrow\infty}}{A}_{{{n}}}={266.67}\)

Mg reacts with H+ (aq) according to
\(\displaystyle{M}{g{{\left({s}\right)}}}+{2}{H}+{\left({a}{q}\right)}\to{M}{g}_{{2}}+{\left({a}{q}\right)}+{H}_{{2}}{\left({g}\right)}\)
Suppose that 0.524 g of Mg is reacted with 60.o ml of 1.0 M H+(aq). Assume that the density of the H+ (aq) solution os 1.00 g/ml,and that its specific heat capacity equals that of water. Theinitial and final temperatures are 22.0 degree celsius and 65.8degree celsius.
a) Is the reaction endothermic or exothermic?
b) Calculate \(\displaystyle\triangle{H}\) of of th reaction. Use correct sigs andgive units.
c) Calculate the \(\displaystyle\triangle{H}\) of the reaction per mole of magnesium.
