Question

In your own words explain what a theoretical plate is . What is the relationship between the number of theoretical plates and resolution? How is theoretical plate height related to resolution? Now quantitatively, answer the following question: How many theoretical plates, N, must a packed column have to achieve a resolution of 1.5 between 2 peaks that elute at 5.42 minutes and 5.63 minutes. At a resolution of 1.5 are these peaks considered resolved?

Answer #1

Theoretical plate: A theoretical plate in many separation processes is a hypothetical zone or stage in which two phases,

i.e. the liquid and vapor phases of a substance, exist in an equilibrium.

The relationship between the number of theoretical plates (N) and resolution (R):

R = (1/4) * (N)^{1/2} * {( - 1)/} * {k/(1 + k)}

Where, = separation factor and k = retention factor

Relation of the theretical plate height to the resolution:

The height of theoretical plate can be calculated by H = L/N, where L = length of column used

This ratio gives information about the resolution.

Finally, **Yes**, at a resolution of 1.5 the given
peaks are considered resolved.

Explain what a theoretical plate is. What is the relationship
between the number of theoretical plates and resolution? How is
theoretical plate height related to resolution? Now quantitatively,
answer the following question: how many theoretical plates, N, must
a packed column have to achieve a resolution of 1.5 between 2 peaks
that elute at 5.42 minutes and 5.63 minutes. At a resolution of 1.5
are these peaks considered resolved?

Please use your own words. The Triangle Paper Division of Ink
Industries is located near Los Angeles. A major expansion of the
division’s only plant was completed in April 2020. The expansion
consisted of an addition to the existing building, additions to the
production line machinery, and the replacement of obsolete and
fully depreciated equipment that was no longer efficient or
cost-effective.
On May 1, 2020, George Harris became manager of Triangle. Harris
had a meeting with Marie Fortner, vice...
