While studying for the engineering economy final exam, you and two friends find yourselves craving a fresh pizza. you can't spare the time to pick up the pizza and must have it delivered. "pick-up-sticks" offers a 1-1/4-inch-thick (including toppings), 20-inch square pizza with your choice of two toppings for $15 plus 5% sales tax and a $1.50 delivery charge (no sales tax on delivery charge). "fred's" offers the round, deep-dish sasquatch, which is 20 inches in diameter. it is 1-3/4 inches thick, includes two toppings, and costs $17.25 plus 5% sales tax and free delivery. 1. what is the problem in this situation? state it in an explicit and precise manner. 2. systematically apply the seven principles of engineering economy (pp. 3-6) to the problem you have defined in part (a). 3. assuming that your common unit of measure is dollars (i. e., cost), what is the better value for getting a pizza based on the criterion of minimizing cost per unit of volume? 4. what other criteria might be used to select which pizza to purchase?
The answer to your question is 13.9 moles
1.- Use proportions to solve this problem
1 mol of water 18 grams of water
x moles of water 250 grams of water
x = (250 g x 1 mol )/18 g
x = 13.9 moles of water
In the dimensional analysis, cancel grams and the units will be moles.
