(1)Contribution Messages

In just few words ;

  1. Economic development is an improvement in the quality of life and living standards in a nation while Economic growth in an increase in GDP or National Income.
  2. Economic development is difficult to measure as it requires multiple factors like good housing, level of education and literacy, environmental quality,per capital income + many more while Economic growth is measured by Real GDP which is the volume of products and services produced in a Nation.

Hello Nasir; Do you know the answer for the question above asked by Bethy?

By Bj On 2021-03-21 21:20:39

Hydration of alkynes occurs when a water molecule is added to an alkyne with a strong acid like concentrated sulphuric acid and a catalyst like mercuric sulphate. 

The product formed is an enol(alcohol). In special conditions the alcohol tautomerise to a keto(ketone).

This is called a enol-keto/keto-enol tautomerization.

A prescription  balance for  5milligrams  of chorpeniramine maleate. Using a prescription balance with sensitivity requirement of 6milligrams,explain how you would obtain of chorpeniramine maleate with an error not greater than 5

Given data

Required to weigh=5mg, sensitivity requirement=6mg, acceptable error=5%;

  1. smallest quantity=frac{100%	imes S.R(mg))}{A.E %}  =frac{100%	imes 6mg}{5 %}=120mg
  2. Multiple =120mg/5mg=> 24.
  3. Amount to weigh= 120mg
  4. Dilution=120mg x 24 =>2880mg
  5. Diluent=2880mg-120mg => 2760mg
  6. weigh frac{1}{24} of the dilution which will contain 5mg of the chorpeniramine maleate.


2880mg ------120mg

120mg  ------x

Cross multiplication

2880mg x =120mgx120mg

2880mg x=14400mgmg

divide by 2880mg both sides

x=frac{14400mg mg}{2880mg}

x=frac{1440mg}{288} =5mg

Hence Proved that the weighed amountof 120mg contains 5mg of chorpeniramine maleate.

For the case of pregnant women, the use of drugs during pregnancy is not encouraged especially during the first three trimesters when the foetus body is still developing.  

With exception of Omeprazole, all other anti-ulcers are strictly not supposed to be taken by pregnant women for  example magnesium carbonate, aluminium tricilicate, sodium bicarbonate and bismuth compounds. 

However if the patient is unconscious anti ulcer drugs should not be administered if the patient must take them until she is  conscious.
